“Shaham’s tone is clear and sweet, and he plays with quiet but unmistakable ardor. There is a ­seamless flow to his performance, a sense of ­propulsion fueled by both thoughtful ­concentration and a willingness to let the music take flight.” - The Chicago Sun-Times

“nothing is unplayable for Gil Shaham. His technique is flawless,his understanding is deep, and his physical movements–sometimes resembling a restaurant fiddler as he sashays from one side of the stage to the other...” - ConcertoNet

“Shaham’s mastery has only grown more profound...” - The San Francisco Chronicle

“...among the most inspired violinists of his generation.” - The Guardian

“A virtuoso and a player of deeply intense sincerity.... One of today’s pre-eminent violinists.” - The New York Times
