Famous violinists – 6

Jascha Heifetz

He was born 1901 on the geographical area of Vilnius (nowadays). Jascha is considered to be the only violinist that can reach the final note of the Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.

Jascha Heifetz became a legend after he recorded Zigeunerweisen, a work that underlines and test the perfect technique that every violinist should have.

His admires would mostly appreciate him for the perfect tone quality  he had, no matter how difficult the music composition was.

After an injury he suffered at his right hand(bowing hand) he focused only on teaching. He died in USA in 1987.

S-a nascut in anul 1902 in zona geografica a Vilniusului (in prezent). Jascha este considerat singurul violonist care putea sa ajunga la nota finala din Concertul pentru Vioara a lui Tchaicovsky.

Jascha Heifetz a devenit o legenda dupa ce a inregistrat Zigeunerweisen, o lucrare menita sa sublinieze si sa testeze tehnica perfecta pe care fiecare violonist ar trebui sa o obtina.

Admiratorii sai il apreciau mai ales pentru calitatea tonalitatii de care dadea dovada, indiferent de cat de grea era compozitia sa muzicala.

Dupa o rana suferita la mana dreapta (cea cu care manuia arcusul), acesta s-a concentrat doar pe predat. A murit in SUA in anul 1987.
