Violinist Gil Shaham partners with The Knights, a Brooklyn-based ensemble conducted by Eric Jacobsen, for his first recording of the Beethoven violin concerto. Shaham was captivated growing up listening to David Oistrakh's recording of the Beethoven over and over again, and it continues to inspire awe in him. Despite the 1000's of times he played the Beethoven live in concert, the whole emotional journey is as fresh here on this recording as if he was playing it for the first time. In his own words "If there is ever music which changes and effects the soul, this is it." This is arguably the most anticipated addition to his recorded oeuvre. The Brahms concerto was one of the last recordings Shaham made as a DG artist, a much lauded live performance with Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
