Itzhak Sells Out Crowds at Home and Abroad
Posted May 23, 2013 by itzhakperlman

Fresh off the heals of sold-out concerts with the Atlanta Symphony conducting Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 and recitals at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Itzhak continued his highly successful season with sold-out recitals in Montevideo, Uruguay and Santiago, Chile.

Itzhak’s international appearances continue this weekend, when he will play at the inaugural concert of the newly renovated Heichal Hatarbut Hall with the Israel Philharmonic and Zubin Mehta conducting. Hope you can make it!

Itzhak Opens the Seasons of the Boston Symphony and New York Philharmonic
Posted Sep 28, 2012 by itzhakperlman

It has been a busy couple of weeks for Itzhak!

Last week, he opened the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s 2012-2013 season with a special all-Beethoven program in Symphony Hall. Itzhak led the orchestra in Beethoven’s two gorgeous Romances for Violin and Orchestra, and then traded his violin for a baton, conducting a rousing, virtuosic performance of the Symphony No. 7 in A Major. As the symphony came to a close on three thunderous chords, the audience jumped to its feet with rapturous applause! Truly a wonderful night of music making.

Then it was on to the New York Philharmonic, where Itzhak was featured as violin soloist on the orchestra’s Opening Night Gala in Avery Fisher Hall. He played delicious bonbons by Rimsky-Korsakov, Massenet, Tchaikovsky, Sarasate, and John Williams, complete with singing tone and characteristically brilliant showmanship.

Itzhak even found the time to hang out with Stephen Colbert!

The season is just getting started, and Itzhak can’t wait to visit old and new friends. Check out his schedule to find out when he will be visiting a town near you.
