If there’s one violinist who you should know about, this is the one. Jascha Heifetz was quite possibly the 20th century’s greatest violinist. Listen to this to understand why. No other violinist could match his artistry or skill. (Many argue that Itzhak Perlman could be considered better, but I don’t agree. While Perlman is possibly the best violinist alive today, I don’t believe he could have bested Heifetz during his best years.) Here he is performing the Paganini Caprice #24.
