Heifetz plays Mozart December 1, 2007

Posted by Jeff in Classical, Music.

Jascha Heifetz performs the Rondo from Mozart’s Serenade No. 7 “Haffner”, K. 250.

In 1917, at the age of sixteen, Heifetz played for the first time in the United States; that evening’s recital at Carnegie Hall became the stuff of legend. In the audience, fellow violinist Mischa Elman complained “Phew, it’s hot in here”, whereupon Leopold Godowsky replied, “Not for pianists”.

Isn’t he incredible! I knew him personally back in the 40’s and early 50’s when my mother was his private secretary/personal assistant. I was so very fortunate to have heard him play a number of times in Los Angeles and once in recital at the Claremont Colleges.
