Jascha Heifetz plays Beethoven: Violin Sonatas, Violin Concerto, Piano Trios, String Trios [7 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
There is never any concession to the primacy of polished sound alone: it is always the nature of the instrument itself, the grain of its wood, the pliability of its strings, the tension of the horsehair, which is brought to bear on the nature of the interpretation itself.
