Heifetz's series of arrangements and transcriptions for violin and piano reveal just how tasteful and refined a musician he was. Crafted with precision, and played with passion, they are alive with his stylistic awareness. Whether in his Rachmaninov transcriptions or in Robert Russell Bennett's A Song Sonata, Heifetz lavished equal care on these gems and they enriched his concert programmes. They also proved hugely popular on disc - thirteen pieces come from a 1960 LP famously called 'Heifetz' - and their variety, virtuosity and sheer beauty remain imperishable examples of the art of the violin.
