Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violin virtuoso David Oistrakh was an artist dedicated to music in all forms; violin, conducting, chamber music and teaching. In the 1930's, following a very successful appearance in a number of competitions, he made a name for himself as a great musician. In the years that followed, his music would then go on to transcend the cultural world.

In this rare and informative program, Oistrakh plays scintillating and emotional performances of such works as the 'Intermezzo' movement from Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole (with piano), excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerti, a movement from Prokofiev's F minor Sonata (with Sviatoslav Richter), a Schumann transcription with piano and more. This historical program documents the great
Read more talent of David Oistrakh and is essential viewing for every lover of classical music.
