In Mendelssohn as in everything else, violinist Jascha Heifetz plays with brilliance and an edgy intensity that impart a feeling of urgency to the music even in its most poetic moments. He brings dazzling technique and heart-on-the-sleeve Romanticism to his searing interpretation, and is brilliantly backed up by Charles Munch and the Bostonians. The recording is spacious, clean, and tonally quite accurate, though Heifetz is a bit closely miked. --Ted Libbey

"I don't know what Musicfan is talking about, Jascha Heifetz really brings out the soul into Tchaikovsky music. I can't complain about anything. NONE of his notes are out of tune, He DOESN'T play too fast (he plays the notes at the right tempo, but the notes are clipped because it's his style), and he never ignores the dynamics. Since I play the violin, I would say he is very fun to listen to, what every violin player should strive for. The Violin Concerto by tchaikovsky is performed beautifully,the soulful canzonetta and serenade melancholique are played superbly. This is definitely NOT a boring cd. If you want to have fun, you definitely should buy this cd, I listen to it every day"
