Alison Chernick’s Itzhak showcases the life and music of Itzhak Perlman, widely considered one of the world’s greatest living violinists.
If there’s a musician who perfectly personifies the resilience, vision and ultimately the contribution of the Jewish people, it’s Itzhak Perlman. Through the man and his music, witness a riveting story of survival and dogged determination.
Trace the path of the Jewish people from the chaos of Europe to the promise of Israel, and experience how humor and talent combine with discipline and drive in this most special of artists. Following his steps from a prodigiously talented boyhood through to today, Itzak offers a glimpse of the virtuoso’s private life, his performance and teaching abilities, and his indomitable spirit.
