Jascha Heifetz

July 03, 2011

Jascha Heifetz was widely regarded in the 1930s as the world’s greatest violinist. He made many concerto recordings in that decade, of works by Mozart, Brahms and Sibelius. Some critics think that these recordings caught him at his best, not the ones he made after WWII. On Saturday at 11, John Frayne will sample some of these 1930s recordings.
