"Brahms composed this music during the summer of 1878, and led the first performance, with its dedicatee Joseph Joachim as soloist, in Leipzig on January 1, 1879.
Jascha Heifetz was the leading figure among the extraordinary group of Russian Jews who dominated violin playing in the second and third quarters of the twentieth century. As a technician he had no superior, and, of all the artists of his time and later, only two or three could even offer a challenge to his electrifying precision of execution. His diamond-point tone and quick vibrato afforded his playing a clarity of line that some felt was almost too perfect, even cold. Most conductors and other violinists ó and audiences ó felt differently and a Heifetz concert inevitably drew sell-out crowds." - AMG.

Heifetz at his finest. Warm, detailed, 'romantic' sound. This pressing has a classical tube sound - warm, golden and rich. A magnificent performance and recording. Phenominal detail and tonality.
Almost no surface noise - what little exists is almost inaudible unless you are really listening for it.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
