Little Yasha Heifetz was able not only to show off at unattainable for others tempo, but had a quite sofisticated taste and sounded beautifully. It is well audible on Ave Maria and Spanish dance. Common remasterings are often dull this moments but here you can feel it as good as it should be.
Both parts are recorded by Heifetz using an overdubbing. The recording is considered a failure, in my opinion, because of the relatively dull sound and the unsuccessful first movement: the tempo is too high, the orchestra plays monotonously, the violins do not differ in tone or style. I think because of this, many people never got to hear Largo, the first half of which is played and recorded musically perfectly. In the second part of Largo, the violins lost their voice, but the finale is recorded very well-expressively and with mood.
1945 re-issue, the sound is intelligible, dense but sharp in the upper middle and somewhat clamped. The violin sings even on the reissue, Heifetz is in vain reproached in coldness.
