Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: Gil Shaham plays Prokofiev

Gil Shaham Courtesy of the artist

Gil Shaham first played Prokofiev's second violin concerto when he was thirteen. 35 years later, he's still playing it. He says "it's a miracle of a piece." On this episode of Performance Today, we take you to a concert in Houston to hear Gil Shaham and the Houston Symphony play Prokofiev's "miracle." Elena See guest-hosts.
