Perlman and Zukerman Play Handel and Halvorsen

This is definitely one of those “made in Heaven” matches; on both counts, actually. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. (Also, a very nostalgic piece for me. I played it a great deal during my piano-lesson days, though perhaps not quite this well. And yes, legalists, I didn’t play the Handel-Halverson version, because that title refers to the specific arrangement for violin and viola.)

This one’s for watching, not just listening. These two are incredibly fun to watch having fun, especially during the pizzicato section. (And speaking of having fun, here’s another performance by a pair of musicians who are clearly having a great time. But so confusing. And so confusingly colorful. I like the umbrella bit, though.)
