Jascha Heifetz (1901 - 1987) style of playing was highly influential in defining the way modern violinists approach the instrument. His use of rapid vibrato, emotionally charged portamento, fast tempi, and superb bow control coalesced to create a highly distinctive sound that makes Heifetz's playing instantly recognizable to aficionados. Itzhak Perlman, who himself is noted for his rich warm tone and expressive use of portamento, describes Heifetz's tone as like "a tornado" because of its emotional intensity; he also said that Heifetz preferred to be recorded relatively close to the microphone. Heifetz owned the 1714 “Dolphin” Stadivarius, the 1731 "Piel" Stradivarius and the 1742 “ex-David” Guarneri del Gesù. He played on gut strings, saying that it was important in rendering an individual sound.
