Classic Arts News   Gil Shaham Will Replace Thomas Quasthoff in Philadelphia Orchestra's Carnegie Hall Program
 
Carnegie Hall has announced that violinist Gil Shaham will appear as featured soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra in its concert there on January 23.

He replaces bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff, who had been scheduled to perform Mahler's Kindertotenlieder but bowed out earlier this week due to a bronchial infection.

Shaham will perform Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 (the "Turkish") with the Philadelphians under their music director, Christoph Eschenbach. The program also includes Bruckner's Symphony No. 9, as previously announced.

Later in the spring, the Israeli-American violinist will return to Carnegie for three all-Brahms chamber programs in Zankel Hall. The series — titled Gil Shaham: The Intimate Brahms — includes concerts on March 22, April 21, and May 2.
