Perlman's
perfection
Violin's virtuous virtuoso

BY ARI SCHNEIDER
SUNDAY afternoon Ann Arbor
will have a unique opportunity to
see one of the greatest performing
artists in the world perform. Itzhak
Perlman - "the consummate master
of the violin" (according to
Newsweek) - has appeared with
every major orchestra in the world,

about the concerns and potential of
handicapped and disabled people ev-
erywhere he performs.
Furthermore, Perlman's humanity
and irrepressible joy at the making
of music are qualities that led Presi-
dent Reagan to honor this Israeli-
born violinist with the Medal of
Liberty in 1986.
Born in 1945, Perlman completed
his initial training in Tel Aviv, and

"Hindemith's Sonata in

E-flat major, Op. 11, No. 1

Rasta and Ramones
RAS recording artist Ini Kamoze brings what's described as
electronic Sly and Robbie-style with steel drums reggae to
St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit tonight in a 'Reggae Relief'
show. Special guests are Edube from Africa, and, from De-
troit, the reggae, calypso, soca and zouk sounds of aptly-
named Spectrum.
And if you're in town for the weekend, New York punk
rock forebears the Ramones will be at Harpo's Saturday
night. The legendary three-chord wonders are touring in
support of their greatest hits album Ramonesmania (no
word yet on whether a Broadway musical is to follow).

eBeethoven's Sonata No. 7 in C minor, Op. 30, No.2
*Bloch's Sonata No. 2 (Poeme mystique)

Itzhak Perlman may have an unorthodox practice technique -
while watching televised Mets games - but it's helped hitn
become famous. And the Mets are 11 1/2 games up.

play, people have to listen," says
Burgess. "I always have a huge
audience... it carries a huge emo-
tional impact - I can set the mood
for someone's day."
Sounds like sublime, highbrow
stuff. But is it? Actually, any music
can be adapted for the carillon. If you
hear a chime of bells someday that
sounds remarkably like "Mack the
Knife," you're probably right.
"Some of my favorites are folk mu-
sic and ragtime tunes - my friends

complain when I play music they
don't like," Burgess says.
Anyone within earshot can hear the
bells from 12-1 p.m. and 5-6 p.m.
daily, and the Summer Series will
present recitals on Monday evenings
from 7-8 p.m. until October. Also,
this Friday at 5 p.m. Margo Halstead
and her Quasimodo, Phillip Burgess
,will pound out Ronald Barnes' "A
Concerto that Two Can Play." It's
better in stereo so if you're interested
in going up to the observation deck
and among the bells, it's open
Wednesdays from 4-5 p.m. and Sat-
urdays from 11-12 p.m.

on most of the great concert stages
alone or in collaboration with other
great artists, such as Andre Previn
and Pinchas Zuckerman, on many
national television shows, including
"Live at Lincoln Center" and The
Tonight Show, and in recording stu-
dios here and abroad. Perlman's
recordings with EMI/Angel,
Deutsche Grammonphon, CBS
Masterworks have won him numer-
ous Grammy awards and nomina-
tions, including his most recent
recording with Samuel Sanders, My
Favorite Kreisler, which won a
Grammy nomination.
While Perlman's virtuosity on
the violin makes him a great musi-
cian, he has also proved himself a
great man. Perlman, who lost the
use of his legs from polio he had as
a child, has worked to educate people

then studied at the Julliard School in
New York under Ivan, Galamian and
Dorothy DeLay. His world career
began when he won the prestigious
Leventrit Competition in 1964. In
April 1980, Newsweek featured him
with a cover story, and in 1981
Musical America named him
"Musician of the Year."

Collaborating with Perlman on
this concert, Samuel Sanders returns
to Ann Arbor for his seventh
appearance. Besides his association
with Perlman, Sanders' collaborative
work with many other eminent
musicians has taken him to Europe,
the Soviet Union, the Philippines,
the Far East, and North and South
America. He has played at the White
House six times during the Johnson,
Nixon, Carter, and Reagan

administrations.
This concert featuring Perlman
and Sanders is guaranteed to be an
exciting and enjoyable opening to
the 110th Annual Choral Union
Seies.
ITZHAK PERL MAN AND'
SAMUEL SANDERS perform at:
Hill Auditorium this Sunday,
September 25 at 4 p.m. Tickets for
this concert are limited. For
information, call 764-2S38.
