Jascha Heifetz is known as the world's greatest violinists to many. Second to none in his technical abilities.
Here's the question: Why didn't he ever record Paganini besides his Moto Perpetuo and three of his caprices?
Why not the Concerto No. 1? Why not the whole 24 caprices?
I've been searching for this answer for a long time and have not come to a conclusion. Some say that Paganini might have ruined his reputation because of its extreme difficulty. I don't know.
What do you guys think?
