Big Sur Coast Of California With Waves Of The Pacific Ocean Crashing Against Rocky Shores

Itzhak Perlman returns to the Westcoast this month on a 10-city tour spanning a period of 14 days. His longtime collaborator, pianist Rohan De Silva, joins him on the road for 8 of the 10 concerts in a recital program that features Beethoven’s popular “Spring” Sonata No. 5 in F Major and Stravinsky Suite Italienne. The first half of the program opens with Vivaldi Sonatina in A Major and the second half opens with Schumann Fantasistücke for Violin and Piano, a piece written for clarinet (or cello) with piano but played on the violin by the master himself with Mr. De Silva at the keyboard.

On January 21st, Perlman performs favorite works for violin and orchestra from the Silver Screen with the San Diego Symphony under the baton of fast-rising conductor Cristian Macelaru. Then on January 23rd, Perlman heads to Santa Barbara to reunite with his longtime klezmer musical friends for the 20th anniversary of In the Fiddler’s House featuring Andy Statman, Hankus Netsky, members of the Brave Old World, Klezmer Conservatory Band and other special guests.

Twenty years have passed since Itzhak Perlman made his iconic album of klezmer music, “In the Fiddler’s House”. The collection of traditional klezmer songs was also filmed as a PBS special, which earned Perlman his third Emmy Award, featuring the reigning violin virtuoso performing in Poland with the world’s finest klezmer musicians. Marking its 20th anniversary, Perlman revisits this important, personal project, featuring music director Hankus Netsky on saxophone and piano, Andy Statman on clarinet and mandolin, members of the Brave Old World and Klezmer Conservatory Band and other special guests.

Itzhak Perlman performs Beethoven’s “Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 8, in G” with pianist Yefim Bronfman. Pianist Yuja Wang performs “Piazzola Grand Tango,” in a tribute to pianist Martha Argerich on tonight’s The 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors TV Special from Washington, D.C. at 9 p.m. on CBS.

Jeff Goldblum and Placido Domingo speak eloquently about her passionate, expressive style, but it’s violinist Itzhak Perlman who pays her the greatest compliment, saying, “I’m actually feeling lucky to be living during your lifetime so that we can experience your musicianship, your brilliance, and your poetry.”

Oscar winner Al Pacino, singer-songwriter James Taylor, R&B singer Mavis Staples, Argentine pianist Martha Argerich and members of the rock band the Eagles are feted by President and Mrs. Obama and others in this ceremony hosted by Stephen Colbert.

Itzhak Perlman Makes Broadway Debut in ‘Oh, Hello on Broadway’

Itzhak Perlman was the surprise guest at the matinee performance of ‘OH, HELLO ON BROADWAY’ starring Nick Kroll (Comedy Central’s “Kroll Show”) and John Mulaney (Netflix’s “The Comeback Kid”), on Saturday, November 26, 2016. The appearance marked Itzhak Perlman’s Broadway theater debut and showcased his comedic talents. He joins another notable guests including Tina Fey, Katie Couric, Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller, Stephen Colbert and Alan Alda who have appeared in the ‘Too Much Tuna’ segment during performances at the Lyceum Theater on Broadway.

Oh, Hello stars Nick and John as their wildly popular alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland – outrageously opinionated, 70-something, native New Yorkers that Kroll and Mulaney first began performing on the alt-comedy stages in NYC. Honed for well over a decade, the duo garnered a cult following as they found their way onto a Comedy Central special, viral videos and late night couches everywhere.

OH, HELLO ON BROADWAY is Gil and George’s pull-no-punches “memoir for the stage”—a laugh-a-minute two-man tour-de-force that’s part scripted, part spontaneous comedy and at once an affectionate homage to the stage and a skewering of the autobiographical celebrity-driven “theatre event of the season.”
