Israeli violinist Itzhak Perlman is known for his brilliant technique, direct interpretation and precision in detail. He has an international reputation as an outstanding violinist of the 19th and 20th century repertoire. At age four, he lost the use of his legs due to polio. Shortly after that he began violin lessons at Shulamit High School in Tel-Aviv. By age ten he was performing in concerts and recitals with the Israel Broadcasting Orchestra. After winning a talent competition to appear on American television, he obtained scholarships and awards that allowed him to stay in New York and study at the Juilliard School with Galamian. He made his professional debute at Carnegie Hall, and in 1964 he won the Leventritt Memorial Competition. These accomplishments led to engagements with many American orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic. Perlman toured his native Israel in 1965, performing concerts throughout and made his British debut in 1968 at Festival Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra. He participated in the London South Bank Summer Music Series in 1968-9 and created a master class in violin at Meadowbrooks Festival, USA, in 1970. ~ Lynn Vought, Rovi

Born in Israel in 1945, Itzhak Perlman completed his initial training at the Academy of Music in Tel Aviv. He came to New York and soon was propelled into the international arena with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. Following his studies at the Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian and Dorothy DeLay, Mr. Perlman won the prestigious Leventritt Competition in 1964, which led to a burgeoning worldwide career. Since then, Mr. Perlman has appeared with every major orchestra and in recitals around the world. During the past several years Mr. Perlman has also appeared on the conductor’s podium, and through this medium he is further delighting his audiences. He has performed as conductor with the Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony, National Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Toronto, as well as at the Ravinia and OK Mozart festivals. In January 2000 he was named Principal Guest Conductor of the Detroit Symphony. In July 2002 Mr. Perlman was appointed Music Advisor of the St. Louis Symphony through the 2003/2004 season. In addition to performances this season in Detroit and St. Louis, Mr. Perlman will conduct the Chicago, Pittsburgh, Montreal, Toronto, and National symphonies. Internationally, Mr. Perlman has expanded his career as soloist to include conducting engagements with the Berlin Philharmonic, Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Philharmonic, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic. As soloist, Mr. Perlman continues to delight audiences in major centers throughout the world. During the 2001-02 season, he appeared as soloist/conductor with the Utah Symphony at the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. He also participated in the gala opening of Philadelphia’s Verizon Hall, with Emanuel Ax and Yo-Yo Ma performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. He closed out the season with a tour of Asia that brought him to ecstatic audiences in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Taipei. Mr. Perlman has a long association with the Israel Philharmonic, and he has participated in many groundbreaking tours with this orchestra from his homeland. In November of 1987 he joined the IPO for history-making concerts in Warsaw and Budapest, representing the first performances by this orchestra and soloist in Eastern bloc countries. He again made history as he joined the orchestra for its first visit to the Soviet Union in April/May of 1990, and was cheered by audiences in Moscow and Leningrad who thronged to hear his recital and orchestral performances. In December of 1994 he joined the Israel Philharmonic for their first visits to China and India. Itzhak Perlman's extensive repertoire is well represented on EMI Classics.
