About this Recording

TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I.: Violin Concerto / CONUS, J.: Violin Concerto / KORNGOLD, E.W.: Violin Concerto (Heifetz) (1950-1953)

This classic recording features Jascha Heifetz in the kind of repertoire that fitted him like a glove: virtuoso Romantic music, including his only recordings of the ravishing violin concertos by Julius Conus and Erich Korngold. Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular Violin Concerto, of which this 1950 recording is the favourite of many of his fans, receives an ecstatic and seemingly effortless interpretation. Heifetz’s aristocratic playing also imbues the hyper-romantic spirit of Sarasate’s ubiquitous Zigeunerweisen with both dignity and familiarity with the true gypsy style.
