One of the most celebrated musicians of our time, Israeli-American violinist Itzhak Perlman shines in Alison Chernick’s engaging portrait of the gregarious master at home in New York, and on tour in Israel. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent and self-deprecating, his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly with Toby, his devoted wife of 50 years.
