Concerts, Recording Sessions, and Radio Broadcasts: 1906-1974

Compiled by John and John Anthony Maltese

The following is a preliminary attempt to list every public performance given by Jascha Heifetz, including radio broadcasts, recording sessions, and appearances for the USO during World War II. We know that this list is incomplete, especially in the period 1906 through 1920. We invite additions and corrections, which may be submitted to us at jmaltese@uga.edu.

This list is drawn from Heifetz’s personal collection of programs, which are housed at the Library of Congress in the Jascha Heifetz Collection (Boxes 218-233). This collection also contains a scrapbook of programs from 1911 to 1917 (Box 240), and Heifetz’s program files—his own list of concerts arranged by country and city (Boxes 230-231). In addition to our own research at the Library of Congress, we are indebted to Joshua Livingston for giving us access to the papers of Myra Cohn Livingston, which include translations of the Russian programs, photocopies of programs, and Heifetz’s concert diaries. That access streamlined the process of making this compilation.

Heifetz’s personal set of programs at the Library of Congress is incomplete, especially in the earlier years. We have supplemented the following list by drawing upon additional programs from our own collection, concerts listed in Heifetz’s concert diaries, and—especially in the years up to 1920—by perusing published sources, including the magazines Musical America and Musical Courier, for reviews and dates of concerts. In addition, we are indebted to Gino Francesconi, Archivist at Carnegie Hall, for providing us with a list of all of Heifetz’s appearances at Carnegie Hall.

The programs at the Library of Congress contain Heifetz’s handwritten annotations, which include the compositions he played as encores at each concert. For now, we have refrained from listing what Heifetz played at each concert. The separate list of Heifetz’s concert repertoire identifies the compositions that Heifetz performed in public or recorded, and gives a rough idea of when he first played each piece in public.

The dates of concerts given in Russia from 1906 to 1917 are in the “Old Style” (marked “o.s.”) and conform to the Julian calendar rather than the “New Style” (or Gregorian) calendar. Recording sessions appear in italics.

John Maltese is Professor Emeritus of Music, Jacksonville State University, Alabama; his son, John Anthony Maltese, is the Albert B. Saye Professor and Head of the Department of Political Science at the University of Georgia. They are currently writing the authorized biography of Jascha Heifetz.
