Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. One of the 20th century's greatest violinists, David Oistrakh numbered Sergei Prokofiev among his close friends and persuaded him to recreate a work for flute as the Violin Sonata No 2. It features here beside Prokofiev's two contrasting violin concertos - the audacious No 1, completed in 1917, and the more restrained No 2, composed in 1935, shortly before the composer returned to live in Russia.
