Tracklisting taken from labels.
the performances, like essentially all of Heifetz's,are technically and musically peerless.
That manner, that tone and those tempi, however, are well suited to Beethoven; Beethoven represent Heifetz at his finest His absolute technical mastery, of course, is to be assumed.
The duo sonata (in the *Kreuzer*) with Brooks Smith, are classic accounts, that will appeal to listeners who like "lean-beef" Beethoven: trenchant, rugged, with clean classical lines and a minimum of schmaltz or fussy phrasing..
