Once I had the honor to see & hear Mr. Perlman during a rehearsal one day before a concert in Berlin. I was in my former life travelling technician and one day I was (again) in Berlin, shortly after the fall of the wall. The customer, where I had to repair a gigantic printer had almost become a friend through many years and I always asked him, when I was there, who was actually there and with which concerto…or which orchestra, which maestro. Mostly there was nothing or not interessant for me (I was around 1-2 times in a year there). But one fine day the Muses were very friendly to me and Itzhak gave the Beethoven Concerto. Knowing my love to music, my customer asked me, if I would gladly attend to the rehearsal. I couldn’t believe it…. He phoned with someone and I could hear in the almost empty hall the wonderful playing of Mr. Perlman. Lucky me!
