    when he said that you should listen to Heifetz for the role model of the piccolo trumpet tone? I'm listening to him everyday but I still don't get it. I posted the same question on the oTHer website but I want to get as many different opinions as possible. Thanks.

    Heifetz was perfection of interpretation. He connected notes in a way that sounded unbelievably smooth. His silken legato, his flawless technique, his unerring sense of what was the composer's intent made him every violinist role model.
    Here are a few examples of his playing.

    You can always gain from listening to great performers, even if they are not necessarily great on your instrument.

    Here are clips from the movie "They Shall Have Music" where Heifetz plays a big role. Has anyone watched it?

    According to the (wrong) information I've read I quote: "the "kids" in the orchestra include those who went on to successful and distinguished careers as: two professors of music at Juilliard; a concertmistress of the New York Metropolitan Opera orchestra and professor at SUNY Stonybrook; a first chair trumpet player for the New York Philharmonic; three symphony conductors; a renowed clarinetist who still teaches master classes at USC; a longtime professor who, in her mid 70's, performs with a prominent symphony; one of the most sought after harpists by the major motion picture studios; a violinist who recently retired from an active studio and concert career to an active second-career as a sought-after teacher (in her mid 70's), at least three other musicians who had careers as concert artists, several other distinguished members of symphonies and studio recording artists----and a young cellist who might have been a renowed concert artist, had she taken that route, but instead chose another rewarding career: as Sisters of the Immaculate Hearts of Mary---and who still managed to "moonlight" as a prominent member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. "

    Does anyone recognise these "kids" from the first clip?
