Perlman embarks on 10-city U.S. Westcoast concert tour

Itzhak Perlman and pianist Rohan De Silva perform in recital together

Itzhak Perlman returns to the Westcoast this month on a 10-city tour spanning a period of 14 days. His longtime collaborator, pianist Rohan De Silva, joins him on the road for 8 of the 10 concerts in a recital program that features Beethoven’s popular “Spring” Sonata No. 5 in F Major and Stravinsky Suite Italienne. The first half of the program opens with Vivaldi Sonatina in A Major and the second half opens with Schumann Fantasistücke for Violin and Piano, a piece written for clarinet (or cello) with piano but played on the violin by the master himself with Mr. De Silva at the keyboard.

On January 21st, Perlman performs favorite works for violin and orchestra from the Silver Screen with the San Diego Symphony under the baton of fast-rising conductor Cristian Macelaru. Then on January 23rd, Perlman heads to Santa Barbara to reunite with his longtime klezmer musical friends for the 20th anniversary of In the Fiddler’s House featuring Andy Statman, Hankus Netsky, members of the Brave Old World, Klezmer Conservatory Band and other special guests.

Twenty years have passed since Itzhak Perlman made his iconic album of klezmer music, “In the Fiddler’s House”. The collection of traditional klezmer songs was also filmed as a PBS special, which earned Perlman his third Emmy Award, featuring the reigning violin virtuoso performing in Poland with the world’s finest klezmer musicians. Marking its 20th anniversary, Perlman revisits this important, personal project, featuring music director Hankus Netsky on saxophone and piano, Andy Statman on clarinet and mandolin, members of the Brave Old World and Klezmer Conservatory Band and other special guests.
