Alright, people, it's like this:

On an individual level, that is, considered person by person, the question, "Why are there so many Jewish pianists," is really a nonsensical question. Answering it with more nonsense, as Perlman and Horowitz did, is just another way of saying, "Go away with this ridiculous question!"

That's my take, anyway.

And I accept all your thanks for not having posted any circumcision jokes.

I don't think the Horowitz reply was in response to "Why are there so many Jewish pianists?"
