Two friends, virtuosos without peer, get together in their living rooms to perform music by some of their favorite
composers. Beethoven. Haydn. Rosza. Turin. Not for money or fame. For their friends. In the summer of 1961, Heifetz and Piatigorsky decided to share their musical experiences and pleasures with music lovers of the surrounding communities. They founded the Heifetz-Piatigorsky Concerts, an intimate series dedicated to chamber music masterpieces.
Since then, concerts have been given not only in Hollywood but also in San Francisco and New York. Heifetz and Piatigorsky have invited such distinguished artists as William Primrose, Leonard Pennario, Leon Fleischer and Jacob Lateiner to collaborate with them in the concert and in recording.
Impex Records proudly presents an LP and SACD of the same uncompromising sonic and production standards of the artists themselves: Heifetz-Piatigorsky Concerts.
