Notes and Editorial Reviews

The tradition of violinists as featured performers is by now centuries old, and every few years an exciting new voice attracts the attention of the listening public. However, few can hope to have a legacy as grand or as lasting as that of Jascha Heifetz. As one of the first great performers of the 20th century, his name and reputation hold fast as the measure of the modern violinist. Like Paganini before him, Heifetz has become synonymous with the violin. - EMI The tradition of violinists as featured performers is by now centuries old, and every few years an exciting new voice attracts the attention of the listening public.
