Ivry Gitlis needs no introduction to those who love classical music. To the ones that don't know the name , let me start by saying that Ivry Gitlis is one of best violinists in the world! I would dare to say a musical mastermind of our time.
Born in Haifa , Palenstine , to Jewish immigrants from Russia, Ivry Gitlis had a passion for the violin from an early age. When Bronisław Huberman heard him play he invited to Paris , France where he studied at the Conservatoire de Paris, where he won a first prize, aged 13. His teachers include Carl Flesch, George Enescu, and Jacques Thibaud. In 1951, Gitlis made his debut in Paris.
This was the beginning of a great carrier in classical music for Ivry Gitlis. From live performances with John Lennon and the Rolling Stones to concerts with the most respected orchestras in the world there is no doubt Gitlis is a unique artist.
