Recorded in Walthamstow Assembly Hall, England

Producer: Eric Smith
Recording Engineers: Kenneth Wilkinson, Allan Reeve
Remastering Supervisor: John Newton
Remastered from first-generation session tapes at Soundmirror Inc., Boston MA

This RCA Living Stereo recording was made by Decca Records, using their two-channel "Decca Tree" mic setup. It was recorded to 2-track quarter-inch tape at 15 inches per second.  The classic "Decca Sound" shines in this wonderful remastering, the recording every bit worth of high-resolution listening.

Heifetz’s interpretations of Bruch argue in favor of including these in the pantheon of the world’s greatest violin masterpieces and the virtuosic demands of Vieuxtemps are met with Heifetz’s customary flair. A must-have recording.
