Some of these recordings are OOOooooold classics. I noticed one album is from a 1936 recording. Unfortunately, owing the recording technology of the time, the sound is of less quality than what I have been spoiled to expect. But the selections are almost all eminently enjoyable listening. There was only one CD I skipped through and that's a matter of taste. I happen to like tonality and melody so CD[8], with sonatas by Ernest Bloch, Howard Ferguson (Who??) and Karen Khachaturian will likely not get another hearing from me.. Actually, the Khachaturian sonata was actually a fun listen and sounded like the performers were having fun themselves.

Unbelievable good quality for recordings made 60 years ago. Great buy for this nine disc set with ten hours of music.

In almost all of these RCA recordings re-issued by Sony, Heifetz's violin has an odd dry sound. Obviously, the problem is with the recording, not the performance. Much better to get Heifetz's cheap concerto collection from Sony. Or, if you are interested in the Beethoven sonatas, a better choice is "Isaac Stern Plays Beethoven," another cheap offering from Sony.
