In the summer of 1961, Heifetz and Piatigorsky decided to share their musical
experiences and pleasures with music lovers of the surrounding communities. They
founded the Heifetz-Piatigorsky Concerts, an intimate series dedicated to
chamber music masterpieces. Since then, concerts have been given not only in
Hollywood but also in San Francisco and New York. Heifetz and Piatigorsky have
invited such distinguished artiest as William Primrose, Leonard Pennario, Leon
Fleischer and Jacob Lateiner to collaborate with them in the concert and in
This recording is not just rare but beautiful!! Mixed from the original half
inch 3 track masters by Meyer Media in New York and mastered for SACD by Kevin
Gray and Robert Pincus.
The SACD also features the rarely heard bonus tracks from Turina Trio featuring
piano artist Leonard Pennario. It is elegantly packaged with 16 page booklet in
heavy linen paper will surely surpass your expectation.
"Abey Fonn of Impex and her mates obtained the original three-track analog tapes that were then mixed to two tracks by Andreas Meyer of Meyer Media. Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio and Robert Pincus of Impex mastered the LP and SACD, with the LP pressed at RTI. It’s hard to parse out what improvements result from dropping the Dynagroove mastering, what results from the superior mastering chain, and what results from the thicker, quieter vinyl pressing. The recording quality was among the best of the Concert series, with the players arrayed in a lifelike soundstage and the balance among the instruments nearly perfect. I’m not sure how many of the performances preserved in the 21-CD set were issued on vinyl, but none I’ve heard sounded better than the original pressing of this LP, and this reissue is significantly better still, with more body, although the SACD is very close. Call me old-fashioned, but I appreciate the fact that the Beethoven trio takes up all of side one, so when it ends, your reverie is gently nudged by the swish of the stylus in the lead-out groove, instead of the beginning of an entirely new piece." - Dennis Davis, The Audio Beat, www.theaudiobeat.com, 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sound
