Notes and Editorial Reviews
Without David Oistrakh, it is impossible to imagine the picture of 20th century music. A violinist, conductor, and professor, he left an indelible mark on the world of performance art. Now, Melodiya presents some golden hits of violin music recorded by Oistrakh in the late 1940s, at the peak of his violin mastery.
