This Heifetz centenary year should bring many recorded tributes – retrospectives of the master himself, and surveys from other violinists of his numerous encore transcriptions. Elena Denisova’s weak tone and characterless interpretations scarcely honour the occasion, however, and this disappointing release may be overlooked. Michael Jameson
