5.0 out of 5 stars Peerless... April 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
One of the positive aspects of RCA/BMG's merger with Sony is that they can bring together collections from both of their archives. Such is the case with this collection of Jascha Heifetz recordings, with most gathered from RCA's vaults, but the last volume (a live recording of Heifetz's final concert) from Columbia Masterworks, Sony's predecessor.

It has long been popular in some circles to call Heifetz's playing "cold". I think "aristocratic" is a more apt term. It's important to view Heifetz in the context of his time, in which personalized, romanticized performances were being rejected in favor of an accurate rendition of the score. Heifetz was a pretty faithful interpreter, yet all of these performances bear his own indelible stamp: flawless intonation, a strong, throaty tone, tempos that may seem a bit fast by today's standards, well judged use of portamento. It was an approach that well served many different genres of music, from the relatively chaste Bach partitas, to the Slavic passion of the Tchaikovsky concerto, to the wintry fire of the Sibelius concerto. Unlike too many classical musicians, Heifetz knew when to quit. The violinist was only 71 when he gave his last public performance, although he lived another 15 years.

As the recordings date from the late 1940s to 1972, the sound varies considerably. The Bach items are in intimate mono, while the concertos with Reiner and Munch highlight RCA's then new Living Stereo process - and still sound impressive today. While the balance in concerto recordings tends to favor the soloist (Heifetz was notorious for edging himself closer to the microphone during recording sessions), the orchestra is well heard. These recordings have been issued multiple times on CD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite "Original Jacket" caliber... June 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Of the several "Original Jacket" boxes that Sony has been issuing for the past decade or so the new Jascha Heifetz and Itzhak Perlman sets are the only two serious disappointments. Not that there's anything wrong with the music or the performances, far from it. Rather it's that the "Original Jacket" principle has been badly violated in these releases (see my review of the Perlman). The purpose of this series is to produce collections of CDs that are faithful replicas of their original LP incarnations in such fundamental matters as cover art and repertoire content. This the Heifetz and Perlman boxes fail to do. In the Heifetz box most of the CDs include cover art that has been substantially altered from that of the LPs and there are many wholesale and needless substitutions of repertoire as well. I shall list the principal instances:

CD 1: No RCA Red Seal ("Nipper the dog") or Living Stereo logos on the cover (copyright issues?). The LP contained the Beethoven Kreutzer Sonata and the Bach Concerto for Two Violins. The Kreutzer is gone and replaced with the Mozart Sinfonia Concertante and the Brahms Double Concerto. It's not an issue of adding bonus tracks but of REMOVING the ORIGINAL Beethoven piece which changes everything. This was done obviously because that's the way this material was previously released on the ordinary single CD. But this is the ORIGINAL JACKET COLLECTION for heaven's sake. What's the point otherwise? Somebody was just being lazy and didn't want to create a new master.

CD 2: Again no RCA logo. No Living Stereo banner which was so prominent in the original. The LP consisted of the Mendelssohn Concerto and the Second Prokofiev. The Prokoviev is gone and replaced with the Beethoven Concerto.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great treasure for all violin lovers April 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
God of 20th century violinists, unrivalled Jascha Heifetz with all major violin works in a single set? A year ago it could sound as a dream or a fantasy, but it is a dream-come-true thanks to Original Jackets collection. One of the best violinists of all time captured with remastered sound quality is a must have for all violin lovers. His interpretations always stand out and are never same as from other masters, such as Menuhin, Oistrakh or Milstein. His playing is vigorous, controlled, technically flawless, well thought and aristocratic, yet extremely moving and emotional. I completely disagree with people calling Heifetz a soulless player. He certainly had a soul, and it was a very big soul indeed. I assume every violin player and lover have different releases by different violinists, as well as older Heifetz CDs - but this set is something what can't go unnoticed. Remastering quality and boxset quality - a full 5. For Heifetz playing, needless to say, 5 is an understatement.

5.0 out of 5 stars A master at work April 20, 2008
By AFK
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Each of these performances is a classic. Heifetz was the undisputed king of 20th-century violinists. In addition to his RCA releases, the in-concert recital available many years ago on the Columbia label is finally available on CD. Hallelujah!
Performance=5stars; Sound=4stars
