Orchestra: Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Fritz Reiner, Charles Münch. Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Felix Mendelssohn. Hilary Hahn's Mendelssohn is equally good and the sound quality is considerably better (because Heifetz's was recorded a long time ago), so Hahn's is my preferred Mendelssohn. This disc is a must have. This disk features arguably the two greatest concertos ever written for the violin performed by the hands-down greatest violinist of the twentieth century and recorded in the absolute peak of his career. It really doesn't get much better than this for music lovers. This item:Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn: Concertos: Heifetz, Reiner, Munch. See today's giveaways.

The Brahms has great drive-Heifetz and Reiner get through it in 35 minutes-but this never comes at the expense of Heifetz’s singing tone. Heifetz provides his own cadenza, which is suitably virtuosic but not alien to the Brahms style. From soloist and orchestra alike, this is a note-perfect performance in a vivid recording, about which more later. The Tchaikovsky offers more of the same, although in this case the brevity (just under 30 minutes) has more to do with a small cut than with speed. This is one of the RCA Living Stereo 24bit Remaster, two-track in the case of the Brahms and three in the Tchaikovsky. In the Brahms, the orchestra is string-dominant, with winds and brass comparatively submerged most of the time, although Heifetz seems naturally positioned, closer to the orchestra than to the listener.
