All sessions were recorded to 3-track 1/2-inch tape on Ampex 300 tape machines running at 15 inches per second.

Typical RCA Living Stereo mic setups included Neumann M-49 and U-47 condenser and RCA 77DX ribbon mics. Microphones were connected to custom-made RCA mixing consoles, which in turn fed the tape recorders.

Esteemed violinist Jascha Heifetz had a long association with each of these pieces and displays all the luster, virtuosity and wisdom that were his hallmarks. This stunning collection features Heifetz joined by various acclaimed conductors and orchestras. The consistency of excellence by the conductors and orchestras is matched by the various RCA Living Stereo recording teams.
