Music Events, Pre-show talk

We are delighted to announce that Ayke Aguswill give a pre-concert talk before the concert ‘The French Connection’on March 14th at 6pm on her book, Heifetz as I knew Him Dr. Agus came to Jascha Heifetz as a violin student in his class at the University of Southern California, but after he made her the class pianist, she soon became his private accompanist and ultimately his assistant and confidante. Her book is a loving yet unblinking testimony to a unique relationship between an ageing master and his disciple. Always a difficult person, Heifetz imparted not only his art but his every belief and idiosyncrasy. The greatest violinist of the 20th century was a genius who was also insecure and unreasonable, in many respects the former prodigy had never had to grow up. This memoir is an extraordinary story of a unique friendship, told with honesty, understanding and devotion.

Free Event for those attending the concert
