"Mr. Perlman is doing great," said his manager, Charlotte Lee of Primo Artists. "He is resuming his schedule with immediate effect." Perlman will appear Monday at the Houston screening of the new documentary about his life, Itzhak, and will participate in a question and answer session afterwards. He also will attend the New York theatrical release of the documentary on March 10 and 11 after its March 9 release.

Perlman cancelled a performance with Festival of the Arts BOCA last Saturday as well as several recital performances - Sunday at the Arsht Center in Miami and Monday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, which will likely be rescheduled for next season. His Tuesday performance with Rohan De Silva at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Meyers was rescheduled for March 11, 2019.

Also, dates for a March recital tour with pianist Martha Argerich were cancelled or changed due to "family and health problems" cited by Argerich. That tour had included performances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C. and New York. Performances scheduled for March 13 and 14 at Disney Hall were changed to May 12 and 14, with De Silva. A March 20 Kennedy Center program has been rescheduled to May 23, with Pinchas Zukerman and De Silva; and Perlman's March 22 Carnegie Hall performance also has been revised to include Zukerman and De Silva.
