    I was absolutely enthralled by this. Heifetz played Bach every day.

    Thank you, David.

    Richter once said he played Bach 'for hygienic reasons'!

    Yes. Bach's music purifies. No doubt about that.

    When interviewed once, Heifetz did state that he played unaccompanied Bach every day, even when already retired from public performances.
