Abstract:

"For the last fifteen years of Jascha Heifetz's life, Ayke Agus was his closest companion. She came to him as a violin student in his master class at the University of Southern California, but he singled her out when he heard her play the piano; she became his private accompanist and ultimately his assistant and confidante. Agus takes up where previous biographers left off; her book is a loving yet unblinking testimony to a unique relationship between a master and his disciple.".

"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.
