Easily ranks among the greatest violinists of all time.   Why we don`t mention him?in the same breath as Oistraklh et al.  has always been something of a mystery to me.???One of the last violinists to play with true individuality and Character.

Happy Buriday Mr. Perlman.

I echo everyone's sentiments. Not only his exceptional artistry, but also Mr. Perlman's true modesty and class shows itself unfailingly every time he plays and speaks. As a Rotarian and simply as a human being, I fully appreciate his public and personal commitment to Rotary's worldwide goal of eliminating polio from the earth. When Jascha Heifetz was still living but retired from the concert stage, Mr. Perlman prefaced one of his televised performances by wishing Mr. Heifetz a happy birthday and referring to him as "the greatest violinist who ever lived." High praise from someone who easily shares the title.

PS. I know that Mr. Perlman has a great sense of humor. And so, Mr. Perlman, for your enjoyment, here's one by Oscar Levant - "You have to strip away the phony tinsel of Hollywood to get to the real tinsel underneath."
