Heifetz, aged 11, speaks and plays

Jascha Heifetz, aged 11, playing Mozart for Julius Block, a pioneer of early recording techniques at Block's home in Berlin in November 1912. Hundred year old recording! Hear the audience cry Bravo. And then the real rarity : a high pitched voice tells the audience his name and what he's just played. It's Jascha Heifetz himself speaking, before his voice has broken.
