Itzhak Perlman helped the 2017 Israel Philharmonic Orchestra tour get off to a brilliant start last week in New York as a sold-out crowd at Carnegie Hall.

Itzhak Perlman was joined by Pinchas Zukerman, for a special evening featuring an all-Mozart program. Maestro Mehta recently announced that he will be stepping down from his post as Music Director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in October 2019, marking 51 years of making music together. This one-night-only performance saluted his notable legacy and celebrates his extraordinary achievements as Music Director for Life.

We applaud Maestro Zubin Mehta on this tour that celebrates his unprecedented 50 years conducting this orchestra.

Itzhak Performs with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
Posted May 26, 2015 by itzhakperlman

Perlman-Conducting-WEB-795x454The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) proudly hosts Itzhak Perlman with pianist Daniil Trifonov in an all-romantic program from Tuesday, May 19 to Wednesday, May 27, 2015 in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, Israel.

“It’s not like playing with any orchestra, it’s like playing with family,” says Itzhak Perlman on performing with the IPO.

Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has made a spectacular ascent to classical music stardom since winning First Prize of both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions at the age of 20, and has since appeared worldwide with major orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, London Symphony Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

The legendary violinist talks about his difficult childhood, stricken by polio in the war-torn early days of Israeli statehood — and laughs about his early success, whisked away to the United States at 13 to perform on the Ed Sullivan Show. Plus, what makes a truly great instrumentalist? What makes a great teacher? Later, his wife Toby Perlman weighs in, too, so the interview becomes a family affair, topped with a spectacular Mendelssohn performance by eight students from the Perlman Music Program. Toby founded that summer school on idyllic Shelter Island to provide a safe space for young musical geniuses to develop their talents, and themselves. LISTEN NOW

Don’t Miss ‘Itzhak’: A Film & Q & A with Itzhak Perlman in Palm Beach, Florida
Posted Feb 13, 2019 by itzhakperlman


The Society of the Four Arts presents a film screening of Alison Chernick’s documentary ‘Itzhak’ followed by a Q & A session with Itzhak and Toby Perlman on Monday, March 4, 2019, 5:30 PM in Palm Beach, Florida.

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to … Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; “praying with the violin,” says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent, and self-deprecating, and here his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly his devoted wife of 50 years.
