Violin Concertos
2.  Violin Concertos by Elgar/Walton
The list author says:
  "Hearing Jascha Heifetz in Elgar's concerto (I suffer from a severe periodic addiction) makes me feel that this is the only way to play it. Other recordings seem unimportant. Don't wait -buy it!"

Menuhin - Violin Sonatas, Vol 5
3.  Menuhin - Violin Sonatas, Vol 5 by Enescu/Pizzetti/Bach

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Berg: Violin Concerto
5.  Berg: Violin Concerto by Anne-Sophie Mutter

£10.59   Used & New from: £1.46
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Beethoven, Brahms: Violin Concertos
7.  Beethoven, Brahms: Violin Concertos by Johannes Brahms

The First Recordings of Ginette Neveu and The Complete Recordings Josef Hassid
8.  The First Recordings of Ginette Neveu and The Complete Recordings Josef Hassid by Fritz Kreisler
The list author says:
  "While having recorded only these 9 bagatelles, Josef Hassid is somehow one of the Greatest. Beats Heifetz in Achron's Melody, with a more sensitive approach. Tragedy ended his career much too early."

9.  Aristocrat Of The Violin by Nathan Milstein

£44.10   Used & New from: £21.25
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Heifetz Plays Bach
10.  Heifetz Plays Bach by Johann Sebastian Bach
The list author says:
  "C-major sonata with fugue, D-minor partita with Chaconne. Noble and athletic, even a bit frightening. I believe this playing will impress listeners of any direction of taste. Just open your ears!"

£6.01   Used & New from: £2.84
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Mendelssohn
13.  Mendelssohn by Angelicum Co
