If there’s anyone who personifies the resilience, the vision and the contribution of the Jewish people, it’s Itzhak Perlman, whose transcendent violin playing evokes the depth of the human experience.
And the moving new documentary Itzhak, which premiered as part of the American Masters series in October on THIRTEEN, sheds fresh light on Perlman’s personal struggles as a polio survivor and Jewish émigré, reminding us why art is so vital to life. Don’t miss the master in person when he joins acclaimed actor and writer Alan Alda for a conversation on his life and work, touching on the fascinating similarities and differences between performing music and acting.
