"Khachaturian restores its subject to stature that will force a re-evaluation of his place in 2-th century music. Exquisitely researched and crafted and rounded out with a lustily performed soundtrack..." - VARIETY

"God's Fiddler: Jascha Heifetz is an intriguing, full-scale portrait of the artist which will be pure catnip to classical-music fan." - Film Journal
