Violinst Itzhak Perlman to Return to Houston at Jones Hall, 2/7

Violinist Itzhak Perlman returns to Houston for a recital concert on Thursday, Feb. 7, at 8 p.m. in Jones Hall, presented by Society for the Performing Arts.

Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. Perlman and pianist Rohan De Silva have teamed up once again for a recital performance that will include Ludwig van Beethoven's Sonata for Piano and Violin No. 1 in D Major, Op. 12, No.1; César Franck's Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major; Giuseppe Tartini's Sonata in G Minor for Violin and Continuo The Devil's Trill; and other selections that will be announced from the stage.

Beloved for his charm and humanity, as well as his talent, Perlman is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry, but also to the irrepressible joy of making music, which he communicates when playing. Though he has performed for American Presidents and Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, and led such orchestras as the Chicago Symphony and Israeli Philharmonic, among others, Perlman's proudest achievement is his collaboration with film score composer John Williams in Steven Spielberg's Academy Award winning Schindler's List, for which he performed all of the violin solos.
