Right from his Carnegie Hall debut in 1917, Jascha Heifetz’s sensational playing changed the violin world forever. At the centre of the programme is Strauss’s sonata, championed by Heifetz, and both the first and last work that he chose to record over his extraordinary career. This is accompanied by works written for and dedicated to him (Castelnuovo Tedesco, Cyril Scott), and a selection of works brilliantly transcribed and arranged by Heifetz.
