Jascha Heifetz, William Primrose
"Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante" (Vinyl)

Another recording of Mozart's unique concerto (technically a concertante) for violin and viola, this one featuring two of the early 20th century's most famous recorded artists.

This a re-release of an older RCA shaded dog and it's intention is to highlight Heifetz as the premiere performer (the other side of the record also has Glazunov's violin concerto on it) but the earlier recording has both Primrose and Heifetz's name on the cover.  The image on this recording is of an older Heifetz; certainly much older than he was when the recording was made.

They take some brisk tempos, my friends!
