Beethoven / Violin Concerto / Heifetz

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This White Dog Living Stereo pressing has SUPERB sound on side one. It's alive and immediate in a way that the Shaded Dogs almost never are. Listen to the violin! Again, the Classic pressing of this recording does not present the listener with the sound of a real, wood instrument bowed by horsehair in physical space. This copy does.

The White Dog pressing we are offering here is not as rich as the better Shaded Dog pressings we played in our shootout but in some ways the brighter, more forward presentation actually works to its advantage.

More of the music of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)

Product Detail

It becomes a real showpiece for Heifetz's mastery of the violin, so clear and immediate is the sound.

The Living Stereo/ Boston Symphony string tone is excellent, although it can be a little dry in spots and occasionally can become edgy in the loudest sections.

Side Two

Less top end extension than side one, a bit dry, this side was clearly a step down from side one. Quiet vinyl, mostly Mint Minus.

You have here one of the greatest performances ever recorded, and sound (on side one) that few other recordings can begin to compete with.
