Notes & Reviews:

2009 two CD set. With these miniatures, which were recorded between 1944 and 1946, Jascha Heifetz reacted against the classical purists of his time. Today we call that Fusion or crossover and thanks to Nigel Kennedy and Vanessa Mae and many other artists, a Classical crossover is not such a bad thing anymore.
