Shaham Plays Sarasate

November 26, 2008

As noted in this post, this year is the 100th anniversary of the death of the great Spanish violinist and composer Pablo de Sarasate. Not so much going on about this anniversary in the classical music market, but Gil Shaham does pay the tribute to this violin virtuoso.

His live performance of Sarasate music in Lincoln Center will be broadcasted on many PBS stations.

For those like me who cannot watch PBS broadcasting ( 😦 ), check out these two videos (very nice!):
