Jascha Heifetz (1901-1987), born in Vilna, Russia, is widely regarded as one of the greatest performing artists of all time. He began playing the violin at the age of two, with his first public appearance in a student recital in December 1906, and his formal public debut at the age of seven. With only brief sabbaticals, he performed in public for the next 65 years, establishing an unparalleled standard to which violinists around the world still aspire.
