Performer Conductors Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

It was Heifetz's Carnegie Hall debut in 1917 that thrust the then 18 year old into a spotlight that would not dim for the remainder of his performing career in 1974. Heifetz performed virtually everything in the violin repertoire of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods and held the music in highest regard, as is evident here in these powerful performances of the Brahms and Beethoven Concertos recorded from 1927-1936 and restored by Engineer David Lennick.
