Heifetz, Jascha: Miniatures, Vol. 2 (1944-1948)

This second of two volumes (Vol. 1 is available on 8.111379) completes the repertoire recorded by Jascha Heifetz during his short wartime period with American Decca. Aware of the need for lighter music while touring for the US troops, Heifetz nonetheless refused to play down to his audiences, praising the G.I.s’ ‘interest in good music’. This more classical programme represents the violinist’s staggering virtuosity and range, from a spectacular paraphrase of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville to the lyrical expressiveness of Saint-Saëns’s The Swan. The inclusion of four rare V-Disc recordings concludes a remarkable legacy of uniquely vibrant performances.
