“[T]his Garden State ensemble is playing at a very high level indeed … Under Mr. Lacombe, this music was thrilling.”

FROM THE STAGE

“I’ve worked with Gil quite a few times now, and he’s really at the top of my list of violinists. He’s so versatile; he’s good in so much different repertoire. I find him to be a very honest musician; he really goes beyond the technique or the characteristics of the violin.

“I think [what audiences respond to in Shaham’s performances] is that the gesture of playing music for him is so direct, and it’s never mannered—the music comes first. He establishes a real dialogue with the listeners as opposed to just giving a performance. That’s what music is about, and I think the audience feels that. He is such a great colleague and musician—it’s always a great week when he’s here.”

—Jacques Lacombe, Music Director
