Ludwig van Beethoven (1670 - 1727) : Violin Sonata No. 9 "Kreutzer"
Jascha Heifetz and Brooks Smith
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750) : Concerto for 2 Violins
Jascha Heifetz and Erick Friedman, Malcolm Sargent conducting the London New Symphony Orchestra

Heifetz's style of playing was highly influential in defining the way modern violinists approach the instrument. His use of rapid vibrato, emotionally charged portamento, fast tempi, and superb bow control coalesced to create a highly distinctive sound that makes Heifetz's playing instantly recognizable to aficionados. Itzhak Perlman, who himself is noted for his rich warm tone and expressive use of portamento, describes Heifetz's tone as like "a tornado" because of its emotional intensity; he also said that Heifetz preferred to be recorded relatively close to the microphone. Heifetz was very particular about his choice of strings. He used a silver wound Tricolore gut G string, plain gut unvarnished D and A strings, and a Goldbrokat steel E string medium including clear Hill brand rosin sparingly. He believed that playing on gut strings was important in rendering an individual sound.

This Impex LP was remastered by Kevin Gray and Robert Pincus, using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl at RTI.
