Heifetz's collaboration with Munch and the BSO is one of the most storied in recording history. A perfectionist by temperament and a fiercely strong-willed soloist, Heifetz seems here to have found the perfect partners.

The playing in both concertos finds an ideal balance between spontaneity and control of the works' broad arches. Violin playing of greater beauty - and yet displaying such attention to detail - would be hard to find.
