Itzhak Perlman

Israeli violinist Itzhak Perlman is known for his brilliant technique, direct interpretation and precision in detail. He has an international reputation as an outstanding violinist of the 19th and 20th century repertoire. At age four, he lost the use of his legs due to polio. Shortly after that he began violin lessons at Shulamit High School in Tel-Aviv. By age ten he was performing in concerts and recitals with the Israel Broadcasting Orchestra. After winning a talent competition to appear on American television, he obtained scholarships and awards that allowed him to stay in New York and study at the Juilliard School with Galamian. He made his professional debute at Carnegie Hall, and in 1964 he won the Leventritt Memorial Competition. These accomplishments led to engagements with many American orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic. Perlman toured his native Israel in 1965, performing concerts throughout and made his British debut in 1968 at Festival Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra. He participated in the London South Bank Summer Music Series in 1968-9 and created a master class in violin at Meadowbrooks Festival, USA, in 1970. ~ Lynn Vought

This Mozart sonata showcases the pianist equally and Barenboim is also great. Makes me want to get all of them.

Why is there no biography for Itzhak Perlman on the Itzhak-Perlm a n page, but if I go to the Yo-Yo Ma page there is a biography for Itzhak Perlman and no biography for Yo-Yo Ma. It seems like a lot of the biographies are misplaced.

I had the pleasure of attending a Perlman performance back in the 80's and was permanently moved by his combination of emotion and absolute precision. He is truely a master!

One summer my wife visited his music camp on Long Island. I came home with a good feeling. I have purchased many of his CDs for my CD library.
