Itzhak: A film & Q&A with Itzhak Perlman
Monday, March 4, 2019, 5:30PM
Walter S. Gubelmann Auditorium

1 hour 23 minutes • No intermission

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to … Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; “praying with the violin,” says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent, and self-deprecating, and here his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly his devoted wife of 50 years.

Includes Q&A with Itzhak Perlman
