From my review of Itzhak Perlman in today’s Orange County Register online:

“Itzhak Perlman, who played his first violin recital in Orange County in a long while on Sunday afternoon, is a smooth entertainer. The description is not meant to slight. Classical music has but four or five names these days that can sell-out a hall on the basis of their names alone, Perlman among them. We could use a few more Perlmans.”
