Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jascha Heifetz is considered to be one of the finest violinists of all time. His technical command of the instrument and his physical ability to play the violin with stunning precision is regarded by many critics as unequaled. That physical control enabled Heifetz to produce a distinctive tone quality, intense and shimmering, that came to be regarded as his trademark. The Heifetz in Performance DVD captures the legendary violinist at his peak and features selections of his favorite repertoire. Included in the program are several short works for violin and piano performed in recital with accompanist Brooks Smith, a recording session for the Bach Chaconne, a concert performance of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy with the Orchestre National de France Read more and candid comments by Heifetz on aspects of music teaching and his personal views.
