Cut From Original 3-Track Session Tapes!
RCA Living Stereo the gold standard for top quality orchestral performance and sound!
Hailed as one of the greatest - perhaps the greatest violinists of this century Jascha Heifetz delivers what is considered an unequaled performance of Tchaikovsky's beloved concerto. Conductor Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, in top form, provide the perfect context for Maestro Heifetz's dazzling performance. The original 3-track session tapes were used in mastering for LPs and SACDs.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped. Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the decision to remaster these RCAs was made." - Jonathan Valin, The Absolute Sound.com, June 11, 2013
