Gil Shaham (b1971)

Although born in America, Gil Shaham moved with his family to Jerusalem when he was very young. Here he began violin lessons at the age of seven with Samuel Bernstein at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem and in 1980, aged nine, he played for Isaac Stern, Nathan Milstein and Henryk Szeryng. He also attended the Aspen Music School in Colorado, studying with Dorothy DeLay and Jens Ellerman. Shaham soon became a promising young soloist and, as can be judged by his already extensive discography (mainly of established solo and chamber repertoire from the eighteenth century to the present day), he has become a significant recording artist.

He performs regularly throughout Europe, Japan and the USA and has also appeared at the Ravinia, Aspen, Tanglewood, Schleswig-Holstein and Lucerne festivals, among others.

Shaham recorded exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon from 1987 until 2002, after which he founded his own label, Canary Classics. Several of his discs have received awards, including a Grammy® nomination for his Sibelius and Tchaikovsky concertos, and a 1996 Prix de la Nouvelle Académie du Disque for the two Prokofiev concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra under André Previn.
