  1. Wonderful. Izaak Perlman is a firm favourite of many many years. Virtuoso Performer.
    An inspiration to everybody. All the very best to him and his family.

  2. Synesthesia is not a disease, but is combination of usually 2 senses. E.g., one might hear a certain word and immediately experience a fixed color, such as hearing “Alex” and seeing green. It is a permanent condition that in fact may heighten one’s enjoyment of one’s senses.

    The violin concerto of Beethoven, especially performed by Mr. Perlman, is my all time favorite !
