Finals of the 5th Jascha Heifetz International Violin Competition

The 20th century has presented music culture with many outstanding violinists. Jascha Heifetz’ star is one of the luminaries in this constellation. Born in 1901 in Vilnius, dubbed the Jerusalem of Lithuania, he commenced his career at the age of six in Kaunas. Jeifetz earned European recognition in Berlin, and world acclaim in America, which became his adopted homeland in 1917. In 2001, when the virtuoso’s centenary was celebrated, the International Jascha Heifetz Competition for Violinists was launched in Vilnius, Lithuania. February of 2017 will see its fifth edition. The Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall will host the Competition Finals.

Fostering the timeless musical legacy of the violin virtuoso, the International Jascha Heifetz Competition for Violinists is one of the four major music competitions in Lithuania (next to M.K. Čiurlionis, B. Dvarionas and S. Vainiūnas). It is being held every four years. It is sponsored by the Lithuanian Council for Culture and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania. Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Republic of Lithuania, is its patron. The Competition is organised by PI Natų knygynas, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in collaboration with the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society. International Jascha Heifetz Competition for Violinists is a member of European Music Competition for Youth (EMCY) organisation.
