The Violin Whisperer

He is only 26 and already the winner of a prestigious international competition. His intensity and powerful integrity are amazing. Meet a new world class violinist – Itamar Zorman... I am listening and watching Itamar performing in the final stages of the competition. He is playing the two famous concerti by Tchaikovsky and Alban Berg, and I cannot believe my ears: how dare you, young man, perform with such musical originality, a tone full of colors and beauty and an emotional expression full of inner intensity? He has already performed with the great conductor Valery Gergiev... Take flight, Itamar! The musical world will be happy to host you. You deserve it!
