103 CDs + DVD
A monumental set – the biggest CD edition for a solo artist in the world, celebrating the recording career of Jascha Heifetz - a legend who set a standard of violin playing to which violinists around the world still aspire.
An unparalleled collection of 103 CDs and a bonus DVD of Heifetz in performance.
The incredible recorded legacy collected here spans 55 years of Heifetz’s career: from 1917 to 1972.
Contains three hours of previously unissued Heifetz recordings.
Accompanied by a 260-page hardback book with an original essay by John and John Anthony Maltese, photos, and full discography.
Isaac Stern called his playing “the single most powerful violinistic influence in the twentieth century.” Itzhak Perlman says simply that Heifetz is the “God” of all violinists. The violinist Maxim Vengerov told The Strad magazine in 2009, Heifetz’s recordings “left an incredible mark on my musical life.” Vengerov said that he would listen to a recording by Heifetz “from start to finish and then put it on again, to find out how interesting the violin can sound.”
In his lifetime, the name Heifetz – which became synonymous with perfection – transcended the world of classical music. He made a Hollywood movie, appeared regularly on the radio, was pictured on the cover of Newsweek magazine, and reached an entirely new audience through his extensive USO tours for military service men and women during World War II. He even wrote a hit pop song under the name Jim Hoyl. No less than Frank Sinatra identified him as an influence, saying that he listened to Heifetz to learn how to improve his phrasing.
The incredible recorded legacy contained in this collection spans 55 years of Heifetz’s career: from his first recording session for Victor, just days after his triumphant 1917 Carnegie Hall debut, to his last public recital in October 1972.
These recordings are presented as originally issued on LP by RCA Red Seal, Columbia Masterworks, and Vox cum Laude. Original jacket covers and original labels are reproduced as they first appeared. Bonus CDs contain previously unreleased recordings dating from 1934 to 1964. This beautifully crafted and carefully restored collection will allow a new generation to discover the Heifetz magic, and will remind the rest of us why the great critic Deems Taylor once wrote that Heifetz has “only one rival, one violinist whom he is trying to beat: Jascha Heifetz.”
