5.0 out of 5 stars Heifetz with warmth 6 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
I really like this old recording. Heifetz has a deep understanding of especially the Beethoven concerto. There is a lot of true musicianship and feeling in his playing. He is playing in a way that's reminding me of human speech, very intuitive and almost with a feeling of improvisation. There is an impressing clarity in his sound. His high notes have a warm and full sound.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This disc combines recordings made in 1955 and 1959. These famous recordings are ones that I have had in my collection for years but in their previous formats. Having tested the 'Spain' disc and being much impressed I have moved on to the Heifetz recordings.

So far I have heard three such discs and in case the improvement is marked with greater internal definition within the orchestra and with better balance between the soloist and the orchestra. There is also a greater sonic depth from front to back and the whole tonal range is far fuller.

The performances themselves are, of course, so well known and famously so, that further comment on that score is hardly necessary. However I will comment that these are among the finest performances ever recorded of these works. Furthermore, any suggestion that Heifetz could be thought of as on the 'cool' side as has been remarked in the past, can now be refuted by these altogether warmer re-masterings which, I am sure, are not artificially enhanced but instead, tell the truth.

Whatever other performances collectors may have of these two concertos, I would still strongly suggest that these are really worth adding. The Beethoven is a fresh and pacey performance with a very lyrical approach in the first two movements and with an irresistible 'bounce' to the finale. The Mendelssohn redefines the meaning of a 'fleet' performance but this is never achieved with any sense of strain. Indeed the filigree work that Heifetz uses to accompany the orchestra is a thing to marvel at and with the correct balance instead of the 'jumbo' violins so often imposed onto other recordings

In conclusion, I would strongly suggest that these SACD versions are superior to the previous versions and are well worth the price of upgrading.

5.0 out of 5 stars SACD / Surround Sound Confusion 19 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It appears reviewer MartinL is a bit confused as what SACD is . It is a means of encoding higher resolution audio on a disc .
A large number of SACD discs I have are stereo only ( Bob Dylan , The Kinks , etc ).
Just because a disc is SACD encoded , doesn't necessarily mean it is going to have a surround sound ( eg 5.1 ) mix , although some do ..
To get access to the SACD layer on a hybrid disc ( not all SACD discs are hybrids , incidentally ) , requires the use of an SACD capable player.
SACD can have mono / stereo / muti-channel mixes on a disc , or any combination thereof .
I myself much prefer playing the stereo mix only , as I find it has greater impact ( for me ) on a high resolution system ( a mix of Marantz DVD9600 player , Krell amplification and ATC speakers ).
