"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.

Wonderful, rich, warm sound. Tremendous micro-detail - you can hear the rosin on Heifetz's bow. Excellent detail and clear intonation.
Surface noise is very low-level and mostly only heard on very quiet passages. Side 1 does have approx 1 minute of low-level 'ticks' in one section. Price has been adjusted accordingly.
