Jascha Heifetz Collection Vol 1, "Legendary Treasures" / Jascha Heifetz, violin; Erich Kleiber, Concert Hall Symphony Orchestra

Notes & Reviews:

Jascha Heifetz (1901-1987) was a Lithuanian-born violinist, who is considered by many music scholars to have been the greatest violinist of all time. He moved to the United States as a teenager, where his Carnegie Hall debut was famously well-received. A virtuoso since childhood, Fritz Kreisler, another leading twentieth century violinist, wrote upon hearing Heifetz's debut: "We might as well take our fiddles and break them across our knees." This is the first volume from DOREMI of monumental historic broadcasts of Jascha Heifetz, made at the pinnacle of his artistry, and includes 1932 Bell Laboratories test recordings in superb sound. This album received the coveted Diapason d'Or in France.
