These are extraordinary performances coupled with unbelievable sound quality. They were all recorded in the mid 1930's and while the recording has limitations, the performances more than make up for this. The Tchaikovsky in particular is played with far more sentiment and color than Heifetz later stereo recordings. None of the robotic Heifetz here, but rather a virtuoso at his peak technically and artistically. The less familiar Wieniawski is likewise wonderful and the Sarasate shows off Heifetz and his tremendous technique. I have one important recommendation to make in regard to this cd, however: You can buy these identical Tchaikovsky and Wieniawski recordings along with his famous Sibelius recording of the same vintage on the Naxos Historical label for a few dollars less and the sound quality is the same. The only advantage to this one is the Sarasate, but many will prefer the Sibelius.

Growing up in the 1960s, I was more into the music now called "classic rock" than I was into Classical music. Yet even I was aware of Heifetz, Horowitz, and Rubinstein. Some of my very first classical lps featured these great artists. Most of my lps by these artists were recorded from the mid 50s onward. Yet these men had been concretizing long before the 1950s. Rubinstein was born in the mid 1880s. He actually was a star performer for over 70 years and gave a recital at Carnegie Hall in 1903 and in 1973! I was curious to hear their earlier recordings. Had they begun to loose it by the early 1960s? Were they like Kareem throwing up Sky Hooks for the Lakers as a 40 year old? (true, even when Kareem began to loose it he still was better than most).

I have this concerto on vinyl (Heifetz/Fritz Reiner Chicago Symphony) and have more than got my nickel's worth! I was surprised by how good this earlier Barbirolli/LSO recording sounds, not quite as good as the Reiner recording, but very acceptable. From listening to both the earlier and the later recordings, I do not think Heifetz had lost even half a step.

If you have the chance, listen to Isaac Stern's take on this concerto and the very gritty tone he extracts from his violin.
