Notes & Reviews:

Drawn from the worldwide holdings of Sony Classical Music and re-mastered in 24bit High Resolution Audio, these smart, desirable and collectible multi-disc editions, replete with legendary artists, offer many of the finest, most sought-after recordings in the classical discography. The slender, shelf-friendly box frontages feature large, prominently displayed photos of the edition’s featured artist, work listings at the back, with the CDs themselves housed in protective sleeves that divulge the recording specifics for each performance. Violin legend Jascha Heifetz “represented a potent manifestation of musical integrity combined with tonal and intonational purity, technical discipline, virtuosity and intellectual honesty,” declared Gramophone in a 1994 assessment of his achievement, “whether in unaccompanied Bach or in the countless miniatures that he infused with a wealth of wit and feeling.” Now Sony Classical has compiled a special 5-CD box of Heifetz playing his “Favourite Encore and Recital Pieces”. It includes sonatas by Beethoven (the “Kreutzer”), Franck, Saint-Saëns and Richard Strauss, as well as Schubert’s C major Fantasy and movements from Bach’s E major Partita and his D minor Chaconne – plus the great violinist’s own captivating transcriptions of miniatures: selections from Porgy and Bess, Carnival of the Animals and pieces by Debussy, Ravel, Prokofiev, Falla and Walton.
