Gil Shaham

Bach Six Solos for Violin
with original films by

David Michalek
(2014/2015 Performing Arts)

Tue, Mar 31
7:00 PM

“One of the few [violinists] identifiable by sound and style alone.” The Boston Globe
“Go-for-broke passion is a hallmark of his playing – as are his silvery tone, spot-on intonation and meticulously molded phrasing.” The Washington Post
Bach’s towering masterpieces, touchstones for violinists across the ages, inspire a new multimedia event to refresh the soul. The Sei solo (“six alone”), as Bach labeled his set of three sonatas and three partitas for solo violin, are iconic landmarks of European culture, not just the violin repertory. They opened new worlds of expressive and technical possibilities. One of the foremost violinists of our time, Gil Shaham, the winner of multiple Grammy Awards and other prizes, plays the complete six in an exciting live recital to a video production by David Michalek.
UCSB Arts & Lectures is a co-commissioner of Gil Shaham Bach Six Solos with original films by David Michalek
