“Heifetz was and is supreme. He plays the Bach . . . with an extraordinary range of dynamic and feeling . . . How persuasively Reiner shapes the opening of the Brahms, and Sargent the Scottish Fantasy; how tenderly Heifetz plays the ‘Canzonetta’ of the Tchaikovsky, and then astonishes us with his quicksilver brilliance in the finale.” — Gramophone Classical Music Guide

Relive the artistry of violinist Jascha Heifetz in this 2-disc release as part of the Artists of the Century series from RCA. Featuring a mix of chamber and symphonic repertoire, hear Heifetz along with his longtime musical partners Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in the beloved violin concertos of Tchaikovsky and Brahms, as well as notable selections by Bruch and Sibelius.
