Jascha Heifetz: The Complete Stereo Collection - Concertos by Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Bruch,Glazunov, Mozart, Prokofiev, Rozsa, Vieuxtemps, Wieniawski and Sibelius plus solo & chamber works / Jascha Heifetz, violin [24 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

One of the most important and influential violinists of the twentieth century. For the first time, all of Heifetz's stereo recordings in one box set. All newly remastered from the original analogue tapes. Specially priced 24-CD box set.

Jascha Heifetz has been called the first and greatest of all virtuosos. Critics agree that his record company, RCA, approached the truth when they dubbed him "The Violinist of the Century." In Jascha Heifetz - The Complete Stereo Collection, all of Heifetz's stereo recordings are being issued together in a single 24- CD box set, coupled by composer or theme and all newly remastered from the original analogue tapes of 24-bit quality. Less than two weeks after his sensational U.S. debut at Carnegie Hall, a sixteen-year-old Russian émigré named Jascha Heifetz - protégé of the legendary St. Petersburg violin teacher Leopold Auer and already acclaimed in Europe - made his first Victor recordings. Some 40 years later, Heifetz began re-recording much of the mainstream violin repertoire for RCA Victor in stereo. These performances "find Heifetz at his most intense and glowing," wrote Gramophone in its March 1988 obituary, "and their continued release on CD is building up a stunning three-dimensional sound-picture of Heifetz at his peak." The Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Sibelius concertos are included in The Complete Stereo Collection along with the great violinist's last "session" which was a live recording of his last public performance in October 1972. Heifetz's repertoire also featured a vast array of show-stopping virtuoso pieces and his own brilliantly effective transcriptions that are all generously represented in this box set.
