Notes & Reviews:

"Oistrakh's technique is without question stellar and well-suited to the demands made on him by Shostakovich. But beyond technique and the mere execution of these works remains the deep understanding, empathy, and introspection that perhaps only a contemporary and compatriot of the composer could hope to achieve... His unique juxtaposition of technique, pristine intonation, and deep musical understanding of these concertos is just as rewarding as it was in the Shostakovich. With its well-restored sound of violinist and orchestras alike, this collection is sure to be enjoyed by collectors and neophytes." -All Music Guide
