Happy Valentines Day, blogosphere! In the spirit of love – love for each other, love for music, love for the arts – I present you with the very beginning of my love for the violin. I don’t know what year this was, but I know I saw it when I was a young child, and it was my first exposure I can remember to the instrument. It was absolutely my first exposure to Itzhak Perlman, who is one of my greatest violin inspirations. I can only hope Sesame Street is still this good.
