5.0 out of 5 stars Rare, priceless 30 Jun 2002
By "nderrick" - Published on Amazon.com
This collecrtion has some pieces that are hard to find. Dance of the goblins is a excellent violin piece, but finding it played by a great violinist is hard. Jascha Heifetz plays is perfectly. The songs are not only great, but this CD features an ALL STAR cast. Every artist on this CD is of a class of violinst that has vanished. The only one remaining, Isaac Stern, died a while ago, leaving this amazing, unbeatable generation gone forever.
Buy this CD now, you will never find a collection this stackedm or find these pieces played so well.
Please excuse the poor sound, it can be largely removed with proper equlization and sound controls, the music is worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST classical music CD on this planet! 18 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I got this on a Monday and by Tuesday evening, I must have listened to it about 10 times. It is the absolutely best compilation of violin works by the best violinists that ever lived. Yes, there is surface noise due to the age of recordings (most were done during the 1930's and 1940's) but I was absolutely riveted by the music that I didn't even notice the surface noise. This is a CD you really find yourself listening to from beginning to end with no distractions (cooking, reading, etc.) because the music is so beautiful, you are spellbounded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Jewels 28 Mar 2005
By Faddle - Published on Amazon.com
There be rare jewels here.

They're all great encores by the greatest violinists of the 20th

century. I wish Fritz Kreisler had been represented by a piece

that isn't so overplayed. There are gems in this set, every one of them, but you have to hear Ricci in 'Burleska'; such amazing incisiveness and bite (accompanied by his teacher, Louis Persinger !!). I wouldn't blame you if you listen to Amazon's

music links here over and over. These guys are the best !!

Foreign violinists, save Francescatti are probably under-represented here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mono recording -- beware 27 April 2005
By Astrodonkey - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's my own fault for not looking at the label and seeing this disc consists of all mono recordings, which were made in the 30's and 40's. As such the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Maybe historical recordings are of interest to you, I don't know, but I'd rather have the crisp clear CD sound of a modern recording.

Otherwise, the playing is very good.
