Notes & Reviews:

The music of Scotland has long inspired classical composers. Scottish reels were first immortalized by Beethoven. Playing Bruch's Scottish Fantasia, violinist David Oistrakh pays tribute to the country's rugged beauty, conjuring up the ancient, remote feel of Caledonia. The program here is completed by classic performances of Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony and Hebrides Overture.
