Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. “Since the late 1960s, Perlman has reigned supreme among the world’s violinists” (The Washington Post). Perlman has performed with every major orchestra and at venerable concert halls around the globe. He has performed multiple times at the White House, was granted a Kennedy Center Honor in 2003 and has won four Emmy Awards and 15 Grammys, including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.

The superstar violinist performs Bruch’s Violin Concerto in a special evening with the Naples Philharmonic.

Naples author Nathan Hill will hold a pre-concert book singing and brief discussion about his debut novel, The Nix, which depicts a performance of the Bruch Violin Concerto. Hill is married to Naples Philharmonic assistant principal bassoon Jenni Groyon Hill.


This concert is supported by the Dr. Morris and Lois Lipnik Guest Artist Fund.

Yaniv Segal

Yaniv Segal


Yaniv Segal is the assistant conductor to Andrey Boreyko and the Naples Philharmonic and director of the Naples Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. A versatile young conductor, composer and violinist who is dedicated to bringing classical music of all types to a broad and mainstream audience, he was spotlighted by Esquire magazine as a rising star who is “redefining classical music.” He also served as assistant conductor for the Krzysztof Penderecki Festival in Warsaw and assisted Bright Sheng on a recording for Naxos Records with the Hong Kong Philharmonic.

Highlights of Yaniv’s last season include recording Joy and Sorrow, a CD of new Klezmer-inspired music released on Chesky Records and HDtracks in 2015, and the premiere performances of his Rite of Spring (Redux), an arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite for modern orchestra including electric guitar, bass guitar and saxophone.
