Directed by: Alison Chernick
Starring: Itzhak Perlman

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. Alison CHernick's enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent, and self-deprecating, and here his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family, and friends, and most endearingly his devoted wife of 50 years. Itzhak is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.
