Today is Israeli-American violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman’s 71st birthday.
A protege of Ivan Galamian and Dorothy DeLay, Maestro Perlman is widely regarded as one the greatest violinists of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
He currently performs on the 1714 ‘Soil’ Stradivarius, formerly owned by Yehudi Menuhin – and serves a coveted teaching position at The Juilliard School.
