Hailed as the world’s greatest living violinist, Itzhak Perlman is presented in a highly personal light in Itzhak, revealing his appealing personality and deep passion for music. The film explores Perlman’s remarkable biography as an immigrant of humble origins and a childhood victim of polio who went from young violin prodigy (debuting at 13 on “The Ed Sullivan Show”) to established international star, balancing a demanding performance schedule with a robust family life. Funny, irreverent and self-deprecating, Perlman is seen rehearsing with fellow musicians Evgeny Kissin and Mischa Maisky, trading stories in his kitchen with longtime friend Alan Alda, enthusiastically attending a Mets baseball game, teaching classes with eager young students, and sharing a loving marriage with Toby, his wife of over 50 years, in a close-knit household steeped in Jewish traditions. As delightful and fascinating as the famous violinist himself, Itzhak is an unforgettable portrait of musical virtuosity enclosed in warmth, humor and love. Directed by Alison Chernick (Matthew Barney: No Restraint).
