Virtuoso violinist Itzhak Perlman takes viewers on an eye- and ear-opening tour of klezmer music, from New York to Krakow. This traditional music of Yiddish-speaking cultures, which infuses other Eastern European influences from Roumania, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Poland, and The Ukraine, remains important in Jewish immigrant culture. In addition to guest stars Red Buttons and Fyvush Finkel, klezmer groups such as Kapelye, the Klezmer Conservatory Band and the Klezmatics perform.
