The Spokesman Review

“Superstar” is practically an understatement when applied to Perlman. The renowned Israeli musician taught himself to play the violin using a toy fiddle until he was old enough to study at the Shulamit Conservatory and the Academy of Music in his native Tel Aviv.

He gave his first recital at age 10 and moved to America at 13 to study at the Juilliard School.

After his studies, a career that has taken him around the world and back again has followed. He has released 11 albums, including 2015’s “The Perlman Sound,” as well as three with pianist Andre Previn and one with jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. He also teaches and conducts.
