Sarasate-Virtuoso Violin Works-New CD from Gil Shaham & Adele Anthony

Sarasate – Virtuoso Violin Works, a New CD from Violinists Gil Shaham and Adele Anthony,
Is Available Today on Shaham’s Own Canary Classics Label

Violinists Adele Anthony and Gil Shaham unveil their shared passion for the music of Spanish composer and violinist Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1908) with a new recording, available today, on Shaham’s own Canary Classics label.  Adele, who makes her debut on the label with this recording, and Gil recorded Sarasate: Virtuoso Violin Works after a number of “centenary celebration” performances dedicated to Sarasate’s music, including a November concert at New York’s Lincoln Center, broadcast live on public television, and in “¡Sarasateada!”, a series of Sarasate concerts in Valladolid, Spain.  The new recording showcases the enormous appeal of Sarasate’s dance- and song-inspired works, as well as the music’s sometimes hair-raising technical challenges.

Gil and Adele launched their new Sarasate album on September 29 with a 7:00pm event at New York’s new downtown music hotspot, [Le] Poisson Rouge, where they were joined by special guest artists The Knights. 

A new companion video, Gil Shaham in “Run Gil Run”, was shown publicly for the first time at the evening’s event and can be viewed here.

The Zapateado is a Spanish dance, which inspired a short work by Sarasate that is the eighth track on the new album (a full track list follows below), as well as being the music bed for the video.  Watch closely for special guest appearances by renowned (and less well-known) luminaries from the classical music world.
