“YOUNG VIOLINIST STEALS ISRAELI SHOW! ... Mr. Perlman was heard as soloist in the Tchaikovsky concerto, and the collaboration that resulted had a lyricism and youthful exuberance that made the old favorite sound as though it had been written the day before … His bow arm is unfailingly strong and steady and the fingering of his left hand is dazzlingly swift and accurate. There is a joy and a bounce to his playing that had old timers reaching back in their memories to the days of the youthful Heifetz.”

From a New York Herald Tribune review of Perlman’s 1964 concert performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto shortly after he made this recording by William Bender
