Jascha Heifetz is the cover star of our North America-themed issue, in which we examine his career Stateside. We ask whether there’s such a thing as an American string sound and talk to visionary quartet Ethel. Plus, Joseph Curtin on the ‘Vieuxtemps’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’, and luthier Carl Becker’s favourite things.

Raphael Wallfisch marks the centenary of Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the story of the work’s composition, premiere and subsequent interpretations. Plus we speak to the Kuss Quartet about performing Beethoven on the ‘Paganini’ set of Stradivaris, and investigate how instrument set-up can affect sound.
