Jascha Heifetz Dabbie Stewart

Violinist Jascha Heifetz had that rare combination of talent and expressionism; in fact, there was very little he couldn't play well.

But, I don't really know anything about his life.

Can somebody help? Did he write an auto-biography?

I don't know about an autobiography, but one book I would highly recommend is "Heifetz" by Herbert Axelrod and published by Paganiniana Publications in New Jersey. I have the second edition which came out in 1981. It's subtitle is "An unauthorized pictorial biography of the professional life of the greatest violinist that ever lived". At 633 pages it covers a great deal of ground. If it is no longer in print try your nearest library.

Could this guy play the violin or what?

He also played the piano quite well (relected in the complexity of the piano parts to his transcriptions) and I was told years ago by my uncle (a fine cellist) that Heifetz played a pretty mean game of pingpong.
