Program notes

Itzhak Perlman fell in love with the sounds of the violin at the age of three and a half but contracted polio a few months later and was soon to learn that it would be impossible, with his handicap, to pursue a high-level career as a violinist. Not only has he succeeded in doing what the world thought quite impossible but he has done it on a level that few have matched.
