Itzhak Perlman: In The Fiddler's House

More than twenty years have passed since Itzhak Perlman released his iconic album of klezmer music, In the Fiddler’s House. The collection of traditional klezmer songs was also filmed as a PBS special, which earned Perlman his third Emmy Award, featuring the reigning violin virtuoso performing in Poland with the world’s finest klezmer musicians. In this live performance, Perlman revisits this meaningful, personal project with special guests.

A recipient of sixteen Grammy Awards and honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2008, Perlman’s recordings regularly appear on the best-seller charts. He is also a recipient of four Emmy Awards, among many other accolades. He first came to international attention in 1958 with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and he remains a frequent television presence for worldwide audiences. In 2006, he performed a medley from the five film scores nominated in the category of Best Original Score live on the 78th Annual Academy Awards telecast. He has also collaborated on various film scores and has been featured as violin soloist on soundtracks for Zhang Yimou’s film Hero, Rob Marshall’s Memoirs of a Geisha, and most notably Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film Schindler’s List.
