zukerman perlman

Continuing our viola exploration, here is Pinchas Zukerman performing with Itzhak Perlman. The finest violinist–violist ever?

As he says at the start of the film: 'A violin is easy to play, but a viola is something special. What's a violin? Its nothing!'

Compare it to performances of the same work by two other great pairings: Jascha Heifetz and William Primrose, and Lionel Tertis and Albert Sammons.
