Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Lev Oborin studied with Igumnov at the Moscow Conservatory from the age of 14 and in 1927, at the age of 19, he won the first Chopin competition. From this time on until his death he was central to Russian musical life both as performer and teacher (he taught Vladimir Ashkenazy amongst many others). In the West he is perhaps better known as accompanist to the great violinist David Oistrakh, but the present CD presents Oborin as soloist in works by Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Tchaikovsky.
