Sophisticated works in the "salon" style.

He was born in Kiev and at the age of four, moved to Chicago where his principal violin teachers included Leon Samatini, Adolph Weidig and Leopold Auer, with whom he studied for one year. The violinist on this recording, Lawrence Golan, was a pupil of George Perlman. He also studied at Indiana University where he worked with Josef Gingold and Yuval Yaron.

Review:
"For a collection of violin pieces saturated with Jewish flavor, one could do no better than to investigate this collection. George Perlman (b. 1898) has been teaching the violin in Chicago and composing for most of his life. This disc is played by one of his former students and is an affectionate tribute to a composer whose music, though of the past in its mood, shows a sensitive attitude to harmony and a pleasant melodic touch. The titles indicate subjects from Spain and American Indian music, but there is a pervasive Jewish flavor. It sounds like a series of encores for violin and piano but the effect on this listener was totally disarming." (American Record Guide)
