If you have spoken to me in the past several months, looked at my schedule or care in any way about truly beautiful music, then you probably know that famed violinist Itzhak Perlman, was scheduled to perform here in the Midwest this Sunday.
I had been hoping to have the opportunity to take his portrait while he was here. He is easily one of my favorite musicians of all time. If you don’t know who Itzhak Perlman is, I urge you to watch Schindler’s List again (he is the soloist in John William’s Oscar winning score for that movie). He also performed the Tango piece “Por Una Cabeza” from Scent of a Woman.
Well, unfortunately Sunday’s show was canceled due to a shoulder inflammation. Back in 2003 Perlman was treated for a tear in his rotator cuff.
From what I understand, Elizabeth Sobol (Perlman’s Manager) is trying to reschedule the show as soon as possible. That, as I’m sure you can imagine is news I am very excited to hear updates on.
To everyone that was attending the show with me… I will let you know the moment I find out when the new show date is.
To Mr. Perlman… We wish you a speedy recovery.
To Ms. Sobol… I’m sure I’ll be ringing you up soon to see if a portrait session is possible.
A man can dream, can’t he?
