Israeli-born violinist Itzhak Perlman has performed with every major orchestra and in recitals and festivals around the world. He’s won 16 Grammy Awards, four Emmys, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sunday evening, Perlman performs at UAB’s Alys Stephens Center. He recently spoke with WBHM’s Michael Krall about his career, and whether classical music is still relevant today. The conversation begins with Perlman’s earliest memory of music.
Note: UAB’s Alys Stephens Center is a sponsor of WBHM programming. WBHM’s business and news departments operate separately.
