Commemorating the 20th anniversary of his hugely popular “In the Fiddler’s House” EMI release and PBS Special, Itzhak Perlman and his longtime klezmer collaborators sold out Symphony Hall in Boston on March 6th in a performance that brought hundreds of audience members out of their seats and dancing in the aisles of the concert hall.

The Boston Globe wrote: “They were line-dancing in the Symphony Hall Boston aisles, several hundred audience members, on Sunday night. The performers on stage were Itzhak Perlman and a band of klezmer musicians; and the occasion was the 20th anniversary of Perlman’s 1995 PBS special and recording ‘In the Fiddler’s House.’ On Sunday, in a sold-out house, laughter predominated, precipitated as much by Perlman’s hilarious spoken asides as by the music.”
