One of the world’s most revered violinists, Itzhak Perlman was a phenom destined for fame at a young age — but his life and career presented him with great challenges. The Jewish musician reflects on mastering the violin as a young boy, growing up as the son of Polish Holocaust survivors in Israel, his struggle with polio, and navigating an artistic field with impossibly high expectations. More than a simple biography, Itzhak traces the path of the Jewish people through music in a celebration of survival, resilience and beauty.
