Perlman and Zukerman Play Handel-Halvorsen

Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman are too of the greatest violinists of our generation. They have been with us so long we tend to take them for granted. But they are special. Here they are playing the Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia and they are in top form. Of course, Zukerman is as fine a violist as he is a violinist and it is that instrument he plays here. And, oh yes, Zukerman has a "part-time" job as music director of the National Arts Centre Orchestra. But he is still very active as a solo violinist. Next season, for example, he'll be playing the Bruch Violin Concerto with Christoph Eschenbach and the New York Philharmonic. Just one of his many high-profile engagements throughout the world.
