Mr. Perlman was introduced to the wider American public when he appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show twice in 1958. He made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 1963 and won the Leventritt Competition in 1964. Soon afterward he began to tour widely. In addition to an extensive recording and performance career, he has continued to make guest appearances on American television shows such as The Tonight Show and Sesame Street, as well as playing at a number of functions at the White House. When he was a young child Mr. Perlman spent many days at the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled playing Ping Pong and gaining the self-confidence he needed to play all over the world.
