Renowned violinist Gil Shaham visited WBHM for a live interview. Shaham was in Birmingham for a recital the following night with guitarist Goran Sollscher. He spoke with WBHM's Michael Krall about the concert, his 1699 "Countess Polignac" Stradivarius violin, and his big break on the international music scene.

Shaham has recorded concertos by Bruch, Mendelssohn, Paganini, Saint-Saens, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Barber, Korngold, Bartok, Prokofiev and Vivaldi. He now lives in New York City with his wife, violinist Adele Anthony.
