ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The "singing style" of violinist Sherry Kloss reflects the influence of her study with Nathan Milstein and Jascha Heifetz. Miss Kloss, acclaimed as "one of the foremost violinists of her generation," commanded international attention after winning the Concours de Violin in Europe, the Sterling Staff Competition, and the prestigious Honorary Degree of Excellence from the Academia Chigiana Musicale in Siena, Italy. In 1980, Jascha Heifetz appointed her as Master Assistant in charge of his world renowned violin class at the University of Southern California.

She held this position until the death of the master. Heifetz confirmed his belief in Sherry Kloss by bequeathing to her the Tononi violin with which he made his famous Carnegie Hall debut in 1917. It is upon this historic instrument that she now performs. Her recordings, "Forgotten Gems from the Heifetz Legacy" (Kloss Classics) and "Lost and Found Treasures of the Heifetz Legacy" have received national recognition evidenced by major critical acclaim. Besides an active concert schedule, Sherry Kloss is strongly committed to education and presents master classes throughout the world.

She is Founder and Artistic Director of the "Music Institute for the Development of Personal Style" at Southern Oregon University, and Co-Founder of Jascha Heifetz Society. In 1998, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania issued a proclamation recognizing Sherry Kloss as a prominent Pittsburgh artist. Miss Kloss's current projects include a new publication about her association with her mentor, "Jascha Heifetz Through My Eyes."

WONDERFUL! - Highest Level of Artistry. Stongly recommend!
I strongly recommend this CD! Sherry Kloss plays with delightful and touching beauty of tone and expression, highest level technique and artistry, and a wonderful interpretive style. I find it simply impossible to stop the CD in the middle of any of the pieces! I play it for my own pleasure and to inspire my children to excellence in their playing.

Jim Geddes, Scotland, UK

Exciting addition to the Heifetz legacy.
Excellent miniatures extremely well played and recorded. Anything which perpetuates the Legend is to be welcomed particularly when performed by one who worked so closely with that Legend.
Doubts - have none - BUY IT!

Jeanette Fontanella

The music on this CD is outstanding with singing lyricsm.
Sherry's singing style is strongly reminiscent of her great teacher. This CD is outstanding, fully demonstrating her capabilities as an artist of unlimited capability. I highly recommend this CD for any listener who appreciates violin artistry.

Carl B. Salzinger

Jascha Heifetz Remembered
I highly recommend Sherry Kloss’ performances of the many Heifetz transcriptions and short selections for violin that Heifetz himself enjoyed playing so much. Because she was Mr. Heifetz’s teaching assistant for many years, Ms. Kloss would seem especially well qualified to record these works—and she doesn’t disappoint. She brings outstanding sound and style to this compact disk. Every violin enthusiast who owns this compact disk would enjoy it for a lifetime.

Fantastic violin playing
This is an excellent cd. I can recognise the Heifetz Tradition but this is Not in any way a carbon copy of the master. I especailly liked the Shostakovich Preludes and the Robert Russell Bennett "A song sonata" that piece was on the first Heifetz LP I ever bought
