An Evening with Itzhak Perlman

Symphony Hall

Celebrity Series audiences have loved the great Itzhak Perlman since his first Boston recital in 1971. The great violinist never disappoints, but he does often leave audiences wanting more. More music, more stories, more humor, more Itzhak. This special evening will give Perlman fans insights and personal glimpses into his long and celebrated career. Enjoy an intimate multimedia evening of music and storytelling featuring Perlman sharing anecdotes from his life and career through humorous vignettes, musical pieces, and personal photos and videos from his archives. Appearing with Perlman is his longtime pianist Rohan de Silva.

“Indisputably one of the great violinists …”

The Guardian

“With klezmer, Perlman appears to be perfectly at home… the look of sheer delight that continually illuminates his face underscores the sense of discovery that touches almost every note he plays.”
