Roy Thomson Hall presents
Perlman and Friends is a very special evening that will mark a once-in-a-lifetime presentation featuring some of the brightest classical music stars: Itzhak Perlman, Emanuel Ax, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Juilliard String Quartet.
Perlman and Friends is more than just a collaboration of the world’s leading classical performers, it is a celebration of life. The program was imagined by Areta Zhulla and the late Roger Tapping of the Juilliard String Quartet along with Mr. Perlman to perform the Chausson Concert together. Mr. Perlman curated the program with these esteemed musical friends to one day perform it live together but sadly, Roger Tapping died in January (2022) before he was able to see this project to fruition. The remaining members of Perlman and Friends rallied together to carry on the project and will be performing this very limited run of shows in his honour.
