Notes & Reviews:

As a young teenager, Liana Isakadze was admitted to the Moscow Conservatory without examinations where she studied under David Oistrakh. She was awarded a Grand Prix at the 1965 Marguerite Long and Jacques Thibaud Int'l Competition; more awards followed in the next few years. Her recordings of the Sibelius and Schoenberg violin concertos, made in the early 1980's with the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra led by Alexander Lazarev unveil the brightest features of her performing style. She remains the only violinist in Russia to include the Schoenberg concerto in her repertoire.
