Format: Audio CD
For many years I've been greatly impressed with Heifetz's brilliant performing style. But, with the passage of time my preference for a particular aspect of that style has diminished somewhat. I refer to the the clip at which Heifetz plays this Brahms Violin Concerto. Though I still might concede in its way this performance is an imposing one, I derive greater pleasure from the less briskly paced conceptions of Szeryng, who is accompanied by Monteux/London Symphony, and Grumiaux, who is partnered by VanBeinum/Amsterdam Concertgebouw. The former offers me more expressive warmth, the latter conveys more elegance. Two other versions sit at the top of my favorites list in this work: Milstein's masterful performance with Fistoulari and the Philharmonia Orchestra and Oistrakh's opulent mono reading with Konwitschny/Dresden.

Otherwise, I have always enjoyed the Heifetz/Piatigorsky team in the Double Concerto. Here, Heifetz's urgency and intensity seem to perfectly complement Piatigorsky's open, warmly expressive style. Together, both soloists display a wonderfully engaging instrumental interplay replete with moments of sweep, reflectiveness and autumnal glow. Conductor Wallenstein provides an orchestral backdrop that very nicely dovetails with the main players. This interpretation has long been and continues to be my favorite among all Brahms Doubles.

Format: Audio CD
Let me start off by saying that I absolutely adore any and everything that Heifetz plays. I have 3 recordings of his Brahms, 3 recordings of his Beethoven, 4 recordings of his Tchaikovsky, countless more of his Hora Staccato and Girl with the Flaxen Hair. The making of this CD was one of the very few times in history that such high level of musicality was given proper due by the sound engineering. So whether you agree or not with what I have to say in the next few paragraphs, I'd still highly recommend picking this disk up for historical reference.

As a devoted Heifetz listener, I am outraged every time someone comes along and points out his supposed lack of musicality. Nowadays, the popular course of action among Heifetz-haters is to acknowledge the virtuosity he displays in showpieces just so they could turn around to denigrate the musicality that he displays in classics without seeming biased. After years of thoughtful listening and detailed comparison, I honestly believe that one would either have to be either malicious in intent or just plain ignorant to deny the overwhelming power of Heifetz's playing. At the forefront of the criticism is the accusation that he simply plays too fast. I believe that it's human nature to prefer the tempo of one's first hearing over the different many different tempi which may come from later hearings.

Format: Audio CD
I have had heard this piece performed many times and by many different violinists (Stern, Zukerman, Perlman, Oistrakh, Milstein, Shaham, Mintz) and to say only that Heifetz is the best is to understate the truth by a degree that is so large that it is insulting. Had Brahms known to what unapproachable level Heifetz would play his only violin concerto, he would have devoted it to Heifetz and not Joachim!
You will not find another recording that has so much passion or power. Not for a single moment does Heifetz let you forget that Brahms indicated that the soloist is to play "con fuoco."

I bought it for the violin concerto but the double concerto was a suprize. I has now become my favorite.

Format: Audio CD
My qualifications as a listener are so modest that I comment only reluctantly on this CD. I received it as a gift a few years ago and am about to buy it as a gift for others. Prior to hearing it, I had a lukewarm appreciation for Brahms. But Heifetz and Piatigorsky play the violin and double concertos so movingly that I now want to hear more Brahms whenever the opportunity presents itself. Brahms, in the violin concerto's slow movement, starting with the oboe and transitioning to the violin, enlivens my inner melancholy, if that were possible, more than any other composer except Bach. I have a few hundred Baroque / Classical / Romantic CDs, and this CD is one of the best.
