 Jascha Heifetz Soloist


Heifetz’s unequalled combination of silky legato, classically contained phrasing and technical dexterity found its perfect match in the Concertos of Max Bruch. The G minor recording was the first of two that he made with Sargent and it is, if anything, even finer in its lyric generosity than the 1962 remake. Bruch’s Second Concerto and Spohr’s Eighth were both recorded (as were the Beethoven Romances) in Hollywood, and are the violinist’s only recordings of either work. He exhibits superb control of the former’s long-breathed narrative, and of the latter’s operatic intensity of expression.

"More vintage (1951–1954) Jascha Heifetz (1901–1987) performances as restored by veteran Mark Obert-Thorn grace this disc... The transfer of the G Minor Bruch Concerto (18 May 1951) has my personal appreciation ... The restored Naxos sound has Heifetz front and center, blazingly effective."

Gary Lemco - Audiophile Audition - September 2011


"Naxos reveals the full impact of Obert-Thorn’s equally fine latest volume in the label’s Jascha Heifetz series [HH 1371 & HH 1379]. Indeed, for me the achievement here is even greater—it restores the full tonal bloom to Heifetz’s fabulous 1954 Hollywood recording of Spohr’s Eighth Concerto ... Naxos could easily have labelled this particular CD ‘The Greatest Jascha Heifetz Album Ever’.
