I still remember fondly the days of discovering what is referred to in some quarters affectionately, if somewhat irreverently, as 'the Itzy and Pinky show': Pinchas Zukerman's duets and collaborations with Itzhak Perlman. I was (somewhat belatedly) being introduced to and educated in what I have come to regard as one of the pinnacles of human achievement: virtuoso violin playing.
