Itzhak

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

From Schubert to Strauss and Bach to Brahms, Itzhak Perlman͛s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of life that Perlman himself knew all too well. Born in 1945 in Tel Aviv, Perlman contracted polio at age four and has spent his entire life with mobility issues, to this day still playing the violin only while seated. Despite these early defeats, Perlman persevered and taught himself to play the violin, eventually earning admission to a conservatory where he gave his first solo recital at age ten.
