Jascha Heifetz  (1901-1987) was a Lithuanian-born American violinist. He was born in Vilnius. As a teen, he moved with his family to the United States, where his Carnegie Hall debut was rapturously received. He had a long and successful performing and recording career; after an injury to his right (bowing) arm, he focused on teaching. The New York Times called him "perhaps the greatest violinist of all time."

Jascha Heifetz 1901-1987 - whose beautifully played concertos were the first violin recordings I was given by my wonderful aunt. My ear can still distinguish his phrasing - and my heart soars when I hear his tone, the crescendos, the cadenzas.
