Not since Paganini had there been such a magician on the violin.
The first modern violin virtuoso, about whom Itzhak Perlman says in the film, "When I spoke with him, I thought, 'I can't believe it. I'm talking with God'." A musical wunderkind, he went on to set the standard in violin playing for nearly a century. This film portrays an artist for whom only perfection would do. He became so well known in popular culture that his name became shorthand for excellence for everyone from Jack Benny, to The Muppets, to Woody Allen.
This unique program includes home movies, photos and interviews with the great violinists of his generation and many of his former students, telling how Heifetz was a legendary, but mysterious figure whose story embodies the dual nature of artistic genius: the paradox of how a mortal man lives with immortal gifts - gifts he must honor, but which extract a life long price.
