"The aged Heifetz, the violinist of the century, had much to tell, and Ayke Agus, a young woman from Indonesia - Heifetz preferred "from the jungles of Java" - absorbed it all as they shared their stories about their lives and about music making. He imparted not only the legacy of his art but all his beliefs and idiosyncrasies, teaching her how he held audiences spellbound, how the pianist collaborates with the violinist, and finally how he crafted his transcriptions, the last of which they worked on together."--BOOK JACKET.
