Pressed at RTI! Strictly Limited to 2,000 Pressings! For many classical music lovers, Beethoven’s eighth violin sonata lives in the long, fiery shadow of the ninth, better known as the “Kreutzer”. This is easy to understand, as the Kreutzer is a prime example of the stormy side of Beethoven — the one many listeners see as his most exciting and revealing trait.
However, just as his eighth symphony is the kinder, gentler companion to his towering, formidable ninth, the eighth violin sonata, shorter and less aggressive than the ninth, shows a more lyrical side of Beethoven. For this release, RCA coupled the eighth sonata with the tenth, also in G Major. One of the loveliest of Beethoven's compositions for violin, the mood of the tenth sonata is the perfect complement to the eighth.
Although RCA would often place Heifetz alongside great pianists like Rubinstein, it was with Emanuel Bay that he found the greatest chemistry.
