Additional works will be announced from the stage. “His playing has gained in expressivity,” the Los Angeles Times said recently of GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award winner Perlman. "The thing about Zukerman is that he just keeps getting better,” raves the Miami Herald of the violinist, violist, conductor, and chamber musician. Don’t miss these three virtuosos in a dazzling collaborative performance at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.
