Heifetz, Jascha. (1901–1987)
Statement of No Criminal Record
1955. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. An original typed document issued by the Los Angeles Police Department, certifying that the great violinist has no criminal record. April 5, 1955. The document was requested before Heifetz's South American tour of summer 1955. Facsimile signature. 1 p. Bands of heavy toning and folding creases, with two slight holes at the folds; overall in very good condition. 8.5 x 11 inches (21.5 x 28 cm).<br>In summer 1955, Heifetz undertook a strenuous tour of South America organized by impresario Ernesto de Quesada. Playing on the well-known rivalry between Heifetz and Mischa Elman, Quesada arranged for them both to tour the same region at the same time, allowing local audiences to compare them in closely-spaced recitals. "From an impresario's point of view—and from a culture-hungry audience's—it was perfect. Elman left from New York, and traveled down the eastern part of the continent, while Heifetz left from Los Angeles and started in the west. Their paths crossed, finally, in Chile." (Allan Kozinn: Mischa Elman and the Romantic Style, p. 245).
