I'm less concerned about any comparisons between Zukerman and Perlman and more concerned about Mr. Perlman possibly having COVID - I had it two weeks ago and while being vaccinated four times helps, I was still sick. Wishing Mr. Perlman a mild case, speedy recovery and all the best.

May 18, 2022 at 03:53 PM · Zukerman subbing for Perlman? Well, I never (apparently they're friends)!!!
Looking at the critique, I am not surprised that "Neither piece felt particularly demanding on a technical level, but it didn’t matter; Zukerman seemed much more invested in honoring the melodies than basking in personal glory" - Zukerman has chosen to perform a sizeable amount of "easy music" (I remember him performing Elgar's "Six Easy Pieces").
Doubtless, the two of them have been frequently compared as violinists, but has a single comparison of them as conductors ever been made?
