this one is for my fellow classical music nerds
by pieces of moments
…and I mean “nerds” in the most proud, loving, sense of the word.
This video made me laugh so hard. Gil Shaham is a gem, as always. He was on our (From the Top’s) second season of television (you know, the one that got two Daytime Emmy Awards? yeah…that one), and you should totally watch that as a nice pairing with the NY Phil video below. (Incidentally, you might recognize that Live From Lincoln Center program as the one I told you about last year when Gil was honored with the 2008 Avery Fisher Prize.)
The real question, however, is why was I not in NYC the day they filmed this? Can you imagine walking down the street and having Gil Shaham running past you whilst being chased by a fake bull and a camera crew? That’s all kinds of awesome.
