Jascha Heifetz  
Hey guys, sorry it's been a while. The life of a senior doesn't get easy until March...I have endless auditions! x.x
Anyways, I decided, I'm not really going to post regularly, only when I find a cool recording or something. And I definitely just did.
I can't believe I hadn't heard him before, but hearing Jascha Heifetz play for the first time was quite the experience. I don't think any musician has effected me so much before.

Henryk Wieniawski- Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor
Henri Vieuxtemps- Violin Concerto No. 4 in D minor
Camille Saint-Saens- Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso
Camille Saint-Saens- Havanaise
Pablo de Sarasate- Zigeunerweisen

Jascha Heifetz
Lodon Symphony Orchestra
John Barbrolli

Review of Pieces-
Well, there's not much better then virtuostic violinists writing virtuostic violin concertos. Although less known, the Wieniawski and Vieuxtemps violin concertos are among my favorites. That's all I really have to say though...

Review of Artist-
I will say, without fear, that I believe Jascha Heifetz is the greatest perform yet to have lived. I have never heard anything like him before! Like I said, no ones playing has so greatly affected me before. His articulation, excatness, and just flawless technique are beyond belief. I just can't put into words how completely amazing he is. Maybe someone else whos a fan can word it better, but all I can say is, I wish I could have seen him play live.
