Turning 75 this month, Itzhak Perlman has been so ubiquitous for so long that it is easy to take him for granted / The New York Times
Itzhak Perlman is a superstar in classical music. And not just there: No other violinist enjoys his level of recognition among people who don't even go to traditional concerts. Many have seen him on "Sesame Street," or at Madison Square Garden appearing alongside Billy Joel. They might have heard him speaking about disability issues, informed by the childhood bout of polio that took away the use of h...

Alison Chernick's documentary of Itzhak Perlman is a fond portrait of the violinist / The New York Times
Alison Chernick's documentary is a fond portrait of the violinist Itzhak Perlman. He makes "garbage-pail soup" for Alan Alda; plays the national anthem for a Mets game; collaborates, jovially and seemingly scrubbed of ego, with other musicians. Most important, he plays, filling the film with the yearning strains of his instrument. Ample archival material shows a child sensation playing on the "Ed Sulliva...

Itzhak Perlman Q&A with Worcester Telegram
If the violin is a replica of the soul, as Itzhak Perlman remarks at one point in the documentary "Itzhak," then there's a ready explanation for the beautiful music the violinist has performed over the years. As director Alison Chernick discovered during the course of filming Perlman at his home and while he was performing, conducting and teaching around the world, "he has tons of humanity, tons of warmt...
Itzhak Perlman plays Overture Hall and delivers ? as always / Wisconsin Gazette
Itzhak Perlman delivered more than two hours of technical skill and musical virtuosity in his second visit to Wisconsin in less than a year. Reviewing a concert by violinist Itzhak Perlman is a little like criticizing a sunset. Some rays might appear less luminous than others due to conditions, while other colors may shine more brightly, but the net effect is always sublime. Perlman is much the same, pro...
Itzhak Perlman | Rohan De Silva set for the Schermerhorn / Nashville Scene Q&A
Most American classical musicians toil in obscurity. Not Itzhak Perlman. The renowned violinist is a household name. And in America, household names invariably end up in TV commercials, like the tongue-in-cheek spot he did a couple of years back with comedienne Rhea Perlman. Television is nothing new for the Israeli-American virtuoso. His career began on TV in 1958, when he appeared on The Ed ...
Itzhak Perlman captivates Milwaukee Symphony audience / Milwaukee Journal Sentinel review
Tuesday evening's Milwaukee Symphony audience really didn't want the concert to end. The lights came up in Uihlein Hall and the ushers opened the doors, but a standing, cheering audience continued to call Itzhak Perlman back to the stage for more bows. Perlman, who ended the concert with a deeply moving performance of the Bruch Concerto, brought a fitting conclusion to a concert that been remarkable from...

Itzhak Perlman, greeted with a cheering, standing ovation from a capacity crowd Sunday night at Dominion Arts Center's Carpenter Theatre in the opening concert of the Richmond Symphony's new season, delivered an affectionate account of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor. Perlman's performance was hardly lacking in brilliance - who else mines as much tonal silver from a fiddle? - but this interpreta...
Perlman fiddles while Mets burn / Amazin' Avenue
The Mets' bullpen blew another lead, and the Mets lost 6-5 in extra innings to the Yankees last night after taking a lead into the late innings. After a mediocre start by Logan Verrett that saw the Yankees score three runs in five innings to take an early lead, the newly-called-up Matt Reynolds crushed a three-run home run to give the Mets a lead in the sixth. It didn't last. Jerry Blevins and Addison Re...

Itzhak Perlman At 70 / NPR: Morning Edition
LISTEN TO THE SEGMENT Read Part Of the Transcript - On a long drive, Itzhak Perlman will sometimes listen to classical music on the radio and try to guess who's playing. "There is always a question mark," he says. "If it's good, boy, I hope it's me. If it's bad, I hope it's not me." Sometimes it's hard to be sure: Perlman has played so much, for so long, and says he's stil...

Itzhak Perlman turns 70. Charting A Charismatic Career / NPR
When Itzhak Perlman was three years old, he asked his parents for a violin because he heard one on the radio. A year later he contracted polio, leaving his legs paralyzed but his determination undaunted. Americans first became aware of the young Tel Aviv native when he performed on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958 at age 13. His teacher at Juilliard, Dorothy DeLay, knew that Perlman stood out. He was "on a k...

Will the Next Itzhak Perlman Please Stand Up? / Forward
On August 31, the superstar Israeli-American violinist Itzhak Perlman turns 70, and amid the mazel tovs, music lovers might wonder who will take over his prominent role in musical life when he is ready to retire. Fiddling is a demanding profession, rarely pursued at its highest levels by septuagenarians. Even the Olympian Jascha Heifetz scaled down his performing schedule around that age. Aplomb has been...
