Salvatore Accardo

The professional collaboration and friendship between Salvatore Accardo and Giulio Cesare Ricci has lasted for many decades now. This project dedicated to Jascha Heifetz completes the great violinist's discography.
 
The recording was made by Giulio Cesare Ricci in the splendid historical Sala del Gonfalone in Roma with very special acoustics. He used the legendary Neumann U47 and M49 microphones. The mastering was by Giulio Cesare Ricci using the Signoricci system, entirely analog and tube. The master was created by transferring the analog master recorded with the Nagra 4s 15ips, 2 tracks, 1 / 4inch to dCS A/D Converter DSD. No editing. All the tracks on this record are heard as they were performed.
 
Accompaniment was by pianist Laura Manzini. Jascha Heiftez was a great violinist and as a composer he wrote great musical pages for violin and piano; all very catchy, fun, virtuoso and very dynamic "da salotto" compositions.
