The range of Heifetz' repertoire was in fact quite awesome. True, he remained cautiously aloof of most of the most thorny and demanding contemporary music - no Schoenberg, not even Berg, only transcriptions of trifles from Prokofiev and Shostakovich, and I am not aware that he tackled even the easy pieces of Bartok, not to mention the Sonatas. But Heifetz did do a seminal recording of the Bloch Sonatas (reissued on the Heifetz Collection, Vol. 8 (1950-1955)), and the first is easily as savage as Bartok's two. But other than that, he seems to have been happy with Debussy, Ravel and the neo-romantics, Walton, Korngold and the rest, and his Hungarians were the more gentle and palatable Kodaly, Dohnanyi and Rosza. But on the other end, he did not only Bach, but also Vivaldi when it wasn't fashionable, Clérambault, Couperin, Johann Kaspar Kerll - always in modern arrangements with piano accompaniment. Granted, much of what he recorded were the small encores that the 78rmp era was so fond of, either sentimental trifles or virtuoso showpieces. But he did also the substantial things - the big Sonatas and Concertos.

The recital compiled by EMI in their "References" collection in 1993 is a good testimony thereof.
