    Heifetz writes this piece with six flats, when it would have been so easy to just move it up a half step to one sharp. Then the whole piece is full of accidentals which change within each measure. It is hard to keep track of all those black keys for...

    the piano accompanist. The violin part is fairly straightforward- the melody with octaves the final time around. I think Heifetz was out to punish pianists with this one.
