Jascha Heifetz

Scott talks to Martin Goldsmith, former host of NPR's Performance Today, about the career of violinist Jascha Heifetz. Naxos Records is celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth with a series of Heifetz's orchestral recordings from the 1930's and 40's. Heifetz died in 1987, but is still considered the greatest violinist of the 20th century.
