Jascha Heifetz Tchaikovsky & Mendelssohn Violin Concerti, with Fritz Reiner and the CSO ?????

It is difficult to imagine somebody not liking the Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn violin concerti, and this recording is supremely done to enhance ones’ appreciation for these two pieces. Not only are the recordings of superb quality, but the performance by both Heifetz and Reiner are at the best that these two concerti could experience. Heifetz is an especially commanding and aggressive performer, while maintaining technical brilliance. While Menuhin (reviewed above) has a sweet, light and airy approach, Heifetz has no hesitation to attack. Both, as well as Oistrakh, are the best of the best. Yet, their particular performing styles create entirely different pieces. All three performers are worth having in one’s repetoire.
