Gil Shaham Master Class

This past June I was one of the few fortunate to be nominated to play in a Master Class organized by the Kansas City Symphony for the great Gil Shaham.
It was a wonderful experience starting with the fabulous venue which is the newly built Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, the five star service before the event which included a warm up cabin with my name on the door, a very warm crowd of about 500 and of course the treat and privilege to interact and learn from one of the musicians I admire the most.
One of the things that impressed me was to discover humbleness and sincerity in all he spoke.
The video that we posted on YouTube gathered 60,000 in the first week. That I did not expect!!! I hope you'll enjoy this music making session.
Many thanks to my great pianist and wife Victoria for her support and beautiful playing and to our good friend Dadja for doing such a terrific job with the video recording.
