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 third volume from DOREMI of momentous 1930s and 1940s broadcasts of Jascha Heifetz, recorded at the pinnacle of his artistry. The New York 1935 Brahms violin concerto performance with Arturo Toscanini conducting is arguably the finest performance of this concerto since its composition in 1878. This album won the coveted Diapason d'Or award in France.
