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.

Having performed with every major orchestra and at concert halls around the globe, Mr. Perlman was granted a Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Nation’s highest civilian honor, by President Obama in 2015. His other honors include a Kennedy Center Honor (2003), a National Medal of Arts (by President Clinton, 2000), and a Medal of Liberty (by President Reagan, 1986). Mr. Perlman has been honored with 16 Grammy Awards, 4 Emmy Awards, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and a Genesis Prize.

In the 2019–20 season, Mr. Perlman embarks on a debut tour of An Evening with Itzhak Perlman, a new program that captures his career highlights through narrative and multimedia elements intertwined with performance. The tour goes to Penn State, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, McCallum Theatre Palm Desert, Mesa Arts Center, Artis-Naples, and the State Theatre New Jersey. Mr. Perlman makes orchestral appearances with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in Zubin Mehta’s final concerts as music director, and performs with the Baltimore, Atlanta, Oregon, Charlotte, Grand Rapids, and Toledo symphony orchestras, as well as the Calgary Philharmonic and Colorado Springs Philharmonic. Throughout the season, he plays recitals across North America with his longtime collaborator, Rohan De Silva.

In June 2019, MasterClass — the premier online education company that enables access to the world’s most brilliant minds, including Gordon Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Helen Mirren, Jodie Foster, and Serena Williams — premiered its first-ever classical-music class taught by Mr. Perlman. Available exclusively at masterclass.com/ip, his class offers an intimate and inspirational approach to the world of violin, covering fundamental techniques, practice strategies, and ways to build a richer sound.

Itzhak Perlman’s recordings regularly appear on the best-seller charts. In 2008, Mr. Perlman was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for excellence in the recording arts.
