The Heifetz 25-Year Advent Calendar

Day 18: 1998: Kalinovsky Plays Paganini!
Welcome to December! For our final-month celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Heifetz Institute, we’ll be sharing audio, video, images, and programs from across the decades of the Institute. Check back each day from Dec. 1 – Dec. 25 as we share some memorable moments from each golden year of the Institute!

July 25, 1998: Howard County, MD

We set the dial of the Heifetz Wayback Machine to 1998, to feature a performance by one of the Institute’s longest-serving faculty members: violinist Grigory Kalinovsky, then an aspiring grad student getting his first teaching gig; today a major violin professor at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. See and Hear Kalinovsky playing Paganini’s rarely-performed Caprice No. 15, and see his name among all the other glitterati coming to join our Heifetz 2022 Faculty!

The July 25, 1998 program is lost to the mists of time, but fortunately, Grigory played the same rarely-heard Paganini Caprice a month earlier in our soon-to-be-home in Annapolis, MD!

Stay Connected!

Did you attend the Heifetz Institute? If so, you’re part of an exclusive group of musicians who have explored their full creative potential through the advanced private lessons, unrivaled concert appearances, and the unique Performance & Communication Training method. We believe that the one-of-a-kind Heifetz training prepares our students to become not only more effective communicators and performers, but also more confident and dynamic in all facets of life. Now we want to reconnect and hear more about how you’ve put your Heifetz experience to use – both on and off stage!

Fast Away The Old Year Passes!  The Heifetz Institute has been in the business of helping brilliant young talents blossom for 25 years now, the last two of which have required us to work even harder, smarter, and better to pursue our trailblazing mission. As you consider your year-end giving, please consider supporting our mission to enable the world’s most promising young musical talents to realize their artistic and communicative potential.
