Heifetz plays Mozart December 1, 2007Posted 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”.
