Heifetz is impressive in all three works presented here, but the Scottish Fantasy is the highlight and probably my all-time favorite Heifetz recording.Certainly he has recorded other pieces of music which are much greater--you just don't realize it while he is playing the Fantasy.
Perhaps they should have put on the cover of the album when originally issued, "Heifetz emotes!" for it is this performance which is often
cited to rebut the claim that he was a technically perfect, but emotionally cold violinist. By comparison, the other fare included on this CD, Bruch's G Minor concerto and especially the Vieuxtemps Concerto No. 5 are pedestrian fare indeed. Still, both are played with the customary Heifetz excellence, even if they do not emit the emotional sparks of the Fantasy. The sound is fine in the standard CD version on this hybrid SACD. I cannot comment on the SACD portion of the disc as I am still looking for an SACD player, which are no longer as plentiful on the market as they used to be. But this disc and others by Heifetz would be reason enough to acquire one, judging by the excellence of the CD versions included on some of these hybrid SACD's. This disc is highly recommended.
