Rudolf Koelman, pays a special tribute to Jascha Heifetz and will be touring in Asia and Australia
December 5, 2012 at 12:06 PMOn December 10th, 2012 it will be 25 years ago that the great Jascha Heifetz passed away. One of his last students, Rudolf Koelman, wishes to pay a special tribute to remember this great musician and will be touring in Asia and Australia.
Rudolf Koelman is former concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra; Professor of violin at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK); winner of the Edison Award 2010 and a frequently worldwide invited soloist. During this tour the favorites of the Master will resound. Masterclasses and workshops will be added to most of the concerts (tour dates are marked below).
We’ve been asking Rudolf Koelman why he wants to do this tour.
Why was Heifetz such a great teacher?
‘No strings attached’

From D KurganovProfessor Koelman is a one of a kind performer and teacher. I was so happy to study under him and play with him. His concerts are a real treat, and I encourage anyone interested in the true Heifetz style to attend!
