The Most Beautiful String Playing in the World

This week we’re performing eight new arrangements of music for weddings at the weekend so it’s quite a busy time. But while driving to a rehearsal in Peterborough today I was completely inspired by the most marvellous recording of  Heifetz  playing encore pieces. So far my favourite tracks are Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair, Gweedore Brae and Deep River – all of which are full of the most intensely passionate slides I have ever heard  and the sound quality is far, far better than You Tube. The cds even include Heifetz’s arrangement of White Christmas – the first time I have ever liked this song – and a recording of him playing one of his own 1950s pop songs – When I Make Love To You  – on the piano. It’s touching to realise that, despite the lack of  expression on his face when playing , Heifetz obviously had the most sincere empathy with sentimental love tunes; and when you hear him perform you know that, somehow, somewhere, there must be a heaven.
