Categorized as: Art & Galleries

Not since Paganini had there been such a magician on the violin. Filmed in St. Petersburg, Russia; Vilnius, Lithuania; and in Heifetz's own rebuilt studio in Los Angeles, GOD’S FIDDLER: JASCHA HEIFETZ, spans a musical history of the 20th century as seen through archival films photographed by Heifetz himself. The paradox of how a mortal man lives with immortal gifts - gifts he must honor, but which extract a life-long price.
