CineFest 2013 Presents "God’s Fiddler: Jascha Heifetz"
As part of the seventh annual CineFest, The Gordon Center for the Performing Arts (3506 Gwynnbrook Avenue, Owings Mills )premiers the only film biography of the world's most renowned violinist. Jascha Heifetz was the first truly modern virtuoso, a man about whom Itzhak Perlman said, “When I spoke with him, I can’t believe, I’m talking to G-d.” Heifetz was a legendary, but mysterious, figure whose story embodies the dual nature of artistic genius: the paradox of how a mortal man lives with immortal gifts – gifts he must honor, but which extract a life-long price. Tickets are $11 in advance, $12 at the door, $5 student rush tickets (at the door only based on availability). For information, go to jcc.org/gordon-center/films/.
