Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. Acclaimed for his exceptional talent and artistry, and beloved for his charm and humanity, he is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry, but also to his irrepressible joy for making music.

A recipient of fifteen Grammy Awards and honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2008, Perlman’s recordings regularly appear on the best-seller charts. He is also a recipient of four Emmy Awards, among many other accolades, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Kennedy Center Honor from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. He first came to international attention in 1958 with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and he remains a frequent television presence for worldwide audiences. In 2006, he performed a medley from the five film scores nominated in the category of Best Original Score live on the 78th Annual Academy Awards telecast. He has also collaborated on various film scores and has been featured as violin soloist on soundtracks for Zhang Yimou’s film Hero, Rob Marshall’s Memoirs of a Geisha, and most notably Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film Schindler’s List.
