Itzhak Perlman Accompanies – A Tuba? Your Monday Muppet Moment
I have a new appreciation for Itzhak Perlman after seeing several videos of him in, shall we say, unusual musical circumstances. Â It began with John Williams and the Boston Pops. Â Seems harmless enough, doesn’t it? Â At least until Peter Schickele showed up.
Itzhak Perlman is one of those performers everyone needs to see live at least once in their life, no matter the cost.
A side of Perlman not often seen is his sense of humor. In the video above, he becomes the accompanist to a tuba playing to the Sesame Street Muppet Telly Monster, who at the time had a much low, gruff-sounding voice. Â
You can see him belowÂ as (semi) straight man to Professor Schickele. Â Happy Monday!
