She has collaborated with her husband, Gil Shaham, in the United States and Spain in concerts and recording marking the centenary of the death of legendary Spanish violinist and composer Pablo Sarasate. From the Kaplan Penthouse at New York’s Lincoln Center, this program was broadcast nationally on PBS, as part of its Live from Lincoln Center Series. This was Ms. Anthony’s second appearance in the series, having performed in the Emmy Award–winning “Lincoln Center Celebrates Balanchine” in 2004.
