"Itzhak"

Primary tabs

(Jun. 9 & 17, Jul. 1) — From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to…Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; “praying with the violin,” says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, "Itzhak" is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor and above all, love.

Dir. Alison Chernick (USA/Israel, 2017, 80 min.)

With Alan Alda, Itzhak Perlman, Evgeny Kissin, Toby Perlman, Mischa Maisky, Billy Joel, Martha Argerich.
