From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to…Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, “Itzhak” is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.
