Itzhak Perlman

Photographed on Inauguration day 1/20/09. African-American Anthony McGill played the clarinet; French-born Chinese-American Yo-Yo Ma took the cello part; and Itzhak Perlman, born in Tel Aviv, was the violinist and Venezuelan star Gabriela Montero was at the piano. They played Air and Simple Gifts, by John Williams, quite moving to me as was seeing Perlman, Montero, McGill and Ma together in this sub zero quartet.
