ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday, Itzhak Perlman!

Today is Israeli-American violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman’s 75th birthday!

A protégé of Ivan Galamian and Dorothy DeLay, Mr Perlman is widely regarded as one the greatest violinists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

He currently performs on the 1714 'Soil' Stradivarius, formerly owned by Yehudi Menuhin, and serves a teaching position on faculty at The Juilliard School.

Three things you might not know about Mr. Perlman:

  • He has 2 Portuguese Waterdogs named 'Muttek' and 'Boychik'
  • He’s a wine connoisseur and enjoys a good Burgundy
  • He’s a huge Mets fan and has performed the national anthem at Citi Field
