Virtuoso Jascha Heifetz died on this day in 1987 – aged 86.
A protege of Leopold Auer, he is remembered as arguably the greatest violinist of all time – with his technical command and precision regarded by many as unequalled.
For much of his career he concertized on the 1742 ‘ex-David’ Guarneri del Gesu.
