The Philadelphia Orchestra
--Charles Dutoit, conductor
--Gil Shaham, violin
"The Philadelphia Orchestra is unquestionably one of the world's greats--its sound is incomparably thick and sweet, like a luxurious syrup, with rich string tone, weighty brass and booming timpani" (Financial Times). The renowned ensemble is joined by violin virtuoso Gil Shaham for Walton's sublime and rarely performed Violin Concerto, a masterpiece of the violin literature commissioned and debuted by Jascha Heifetz in 1936.
