Happy Birthday to Itzhak Perlman - wikipedia

Itzhak Perlman (Hebrew: יצחק פרלמן‎; born August 31, 1945) is an Israeli-American violin virtuoso, conductor, and master-instructor. He is widely considered to be one of the preeminent violin virtuosi of the 20th century.

Perlman was born in Tel Aviv, in what was soon to be Israel, where he first became interested in the violin after hearing a classical music performance on the radio. He studied at the Academy of Music in Tel Aviv before moving to the United States to study at the Juilliard School with the great violin pedagogue, Ivan Galamian, and his assistant Dorothy DeLay.

Perlman contracted polio at the age of four. He made a good recovery, learning to walk with the use of crutches. Today, he generally uses crutches or an Amigo POV/Scooter for mobility and plays the violin while seated.

He made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 1963 and won the prestigious Leventritt Competition in 1964. Soon afterward he began to tour extensively. In addition to an extensive recording career, he has made occasional guest appearances on American television, starting in the 1970s on shows such as The Tonight Show and Sesame Street, as well as playing at a number of functions at the White House.

In 1987, he joined the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra for their concerts in Warsaw and Budapest, as well as other Eastern bloc countries. He toured with the IPO in the spring of 1990 for their first-ever performance in the Soviet Union, with concerts in Moscow and Leningrad, and toured with the IPO again in 1994, performing in China and India.

Itzhak Perlman resides in New York City with his wife, Toby, also a classically trained violinist. They have five children: Noah, Navah, Leora, Rami (of the rock band, Something for Rockets) and Ariella. In 1995, the Perlmans founded the Perlman Music Program in Shelter Island, New York, offering gifted young string players a summer residential course in chamber music. Perlman is distant cousin to Canadian comic/TV personality Howie Mandel.

Well it has been one year since I have been doing birthdays and this is the last one. I think he is awesome by the way and a good place to stop. Goodbye birthdays!

Adorable! That's why we always push the chairs in when we leave the table. :)

Susan said...

Oh Sandie. GREAT JOB on the birthday write-ups. We all learned so much about so many people. Thank you so much for your dedication to that immense task.

I love Itzhak Perlman. He is one of my absolutely favorites and he is magnificently talented. Just a gift of our times.

Can't wait to see what you are coming up with next. Have a super day. Susan

Jules said...

That is awesome!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Very cute way to lick the bowl. Love Itazhak Perlman and a fitting end to the Birthday posts!

Elaine said...

Adorable.....who gives her a bath then?

That corgi :) said...

cute! but all I could think of was what a big mess that will be to clean up, puppy and all!! Koda likes to lick the empty cream cheese containers and in doing so, he has cream cheese over his nose and snout, too funny; I can't imagine what it would be like if he got a bowl like this one!

how is GS doing in school?


Mevely317 said...

Soooo adorable, Sandie! I'm like the puppy -- I'd rather eat the raw batter/dough/whatever than the finished product! :)
Thanks for these birthdays ... I've learned so much!
... but I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!

Buttercup said...

What a cutie! Can't wait to see what September brings. Have so enjoyed the year of birthdays.

FishHawk said...

Alas, that puppy situation would not be so delightful if I had to clean up the mess, but it sure was wonderful to see since I don't.

Linda O'Connell said...

Sandie, thanks for starting my day off with a great big smile. This is so cute. As a preschool teacher, messes don't bother me.

Pat MacKenzie said...

Love the little puppy. I see a bath in his future.

Jo said...
