Itzhak Perlman Returns to Mondavi on Saturday

By January 14, 2011

Violinist Itzhak Perlman — an almost annual visitor to the Mondavi Center, who qualifies as a living legend at this point — returns to Davis on Saturday (Jan. 22) at 8 p.m.  Perlman will be joined by pianist Rohan De Silva, a veteran accompanist who has appeared with Perlman many times.  The program will feature a sonata dating from the early 1700s by French composer Jean-Marie Leclair; an early Beethoven sonata (Op.30, No. 2, dating from 1801-02), and the colorful, Romantic-era Violin Sonata No. 1 by Camille Saint-Saëns (dating from 1885). The Saint-Saëns will offer listeners a chance to make a comparison — violinist Joshua Bell and Jeremy Denk (another top-notch pair) played the same sonata at the Mondavi Center in February 2010.  Tickets for the Perlman/De Silva concert are $125-$60 general, and $65.50-$30 students. The concert is technically sold out, but usually a few turned-back tickets become available at the box office, www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787.
