Зима в музыке

Itzhak Perlman is an Israeli-American violin virtuoso, conductor and master-instructor was born on August 31, 1945 in Tel Aviv, British Palestine, where he first became interested in the violin after hearing a classical music performance on the radio. He studied at the Academy of Music in Tel Aviv before moving to the United States to study. Perlman contracted polio at the age of four. He made a good recovery, learning to walk with the use of crutches. Today, he generally uses crutches or an electric scooter for mobility and plays the violin while seated. He made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 1963 and won the prestigious Leventritt Competition in 1964. Soon afterward he began to tour extensively. In addition to an extensive recording career, he has made occasional guest appearances on American television, starting in the 1970s on shows such as The Tonight Show and Sesame Street, as well as playing at a number of functions at the White House. As well as playing and recording the classical music for which he is best known, Perlman has also played jazz. Perlman has been a soloist for a number of movie scores. In 1975 Perlman accepted a faculty post at the Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College. Itzhak Perlman resides in New York City with his wife, also a classically trained violinist. They have five children. In 1995, the Perlmans founded the Perlman Music Program in New York, offering gifted young string players a summer residential course in chamber music.
