“Just by being Itzhak Perlman, this particular conductor had the Philharmonic’s string players emulating his own relaxed warmth and breadth of tone.” So says The New York Times of legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman, who appears with the New York Philharmonic one night only to conduct and perform lyrical Beethoven Romances and powerhouse Brahms.

This concert is a special event of the 2016–17 season.

Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, 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. He has been honored with 16 Grammy Awards, four Emmy Awards, a Kennedy Center Honor, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest honor, granted by President Obama in 2015. The 2015–16 season commemorates Itzhak Perlman’s 70th birthday with three album releases and worldwide concert tours. For the first time in many years, this season he tours with pianist and longtime friend Emanuel Ax in duo recitals that take them to eight cities across America including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. In December 2015 he appeared at Carnegie Hall in a rare trio collaboration with pianist Evgeny Kissin and cellist Mischa Maisky, marking the first time he and Mr. Kissin have performed together. In March 2016 he celebrated the 20th anniversary of his popular klezmer program, In the Fiddler’s House, in comeback concerts with klezmer greats Andy Statman and Hankus Netsky and special guests from the Klezmer Conservatory Band and Brave Old World in Boston, Miami, and West Palm Beach. On the orchestral front, he performed in the Pittsburgh Symphony’s season-opening gala concert, led by Manfred Honeck, and conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony. Throughout the season, Mr. Perlman performs with pianist Rohan De Silva, his regular collaborator, in recitals that take them across North America, Asia, and Europe, including their first appearances as a duo in London, Paris, and Munich. Mr. Perlman sees three record releases in celebration of his 70th birthday: a new Deutsche Grammophon album with pianist Emanuel Ax performing Fauré and Strauss sonatas, a 25-disc box set of his complete Deutsche Grammophon and Decca discography, and a 77-disc box set of his complete EMI/Teldec discography. Over the past two decades, Itzhak Perlman has become actively involved in music education through his work with the Perlman Music Program and The Juilliard School, where he currently holds the Dorothy Richard Starling Foundation Chair.
