"These are the best vinyl releases of RCA LPs I've yet heard." — Jonathan Valin, executive editor, The Absolute Sound

Another of the rare performances of violinist Jascha Heifetz and conductor Fritz Reiner together with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The original 30 ips 2-track analog tape was used in mastering for LPs and SACDs. This stunning performance is nothing short of breathtaking.

Reviewer: Jonathan
I've heard quite a number of reissues of this recording over the last few decades. I'd never really considered this to be one of the great RCAs in technical terms - most remasterings have been a little too plump, subdued and warm sounding, lacking in inner detail and hall ambience as a result. I don't think the 2-track master really helps as compared to the 3 track recordings - you can still hear the "hole" in the middle even in this reissue where the sound is relatively diffuse. This reissue nevertheless sounds quite different to all the others - the top end, though perhaps a little metallic and brittle at times, has noticeably more energy and clarity than other reissues and as a result, the performance presents itself afresh with a "drive" lacking in other reissues. I think this particular reissue - more than any of the others in the series apart from the Rozsa / Benjamin disc also recently released - diverts more off the beaten path in technical terms, but in an advantageous way.
