An Evening with Itzhak Perlman

November 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

An Evening with Itzhak Perlman
Rohan De Silva, pianist

7:30 pm Thursday, November 14, 2019

Itzhak Perlman, the reigning virtuoso of the violin, will return to Penn State for a special evening of live music (announced from the stage), stories, and projected film and photos celebrating a storied career launched with his televised United States debut more than sixty years ago.

Perlman’s warm personality and the rich, burnished tone of his violin have made him a favorite performer across the planet. Beloved for his charm and humanity, as well as for his talent, he is treasured by audiences who respond not only to his remarkable artistry but to his joy for making music. The violinist will be joined by his longtime pianist Rohan De Silva.

“Through humorous vignettes and old movies, Itzhak took us through his youth, even playing some of the early pieces he learned,” writes Paul Pattison, who attended the premiere of An Evening with Itzhak Perlman earlier this year and reviewed it for KCArtsBeat.com.

“… Mr. Perlman’s big break came through American television,” Pattison writes. “The Ed Sullivan Show wanted to highlight talent from the new state of Israel, and auditions were held, and of course, Perlman was a finalist and appeared on the show (in 1958). … Studies at Juilliard followed for Perlman and, soon, international recognition.”

Artistic Viewpoints will not be offered before this concert.
