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 fifth volume from DOREMI of historic Heifetz recordings, and features the newly discovered recordings of the ten-year-old Jascha, made in Russia in 1911. It is their first release in 105 years.
