Notes & Reviews:

The legendary David Oistrakh in a historic pairing of Prokofiev's two 20th-century masterpieces.

Penguin Guide
Oistrakh's (2nd) has never been surpassed ... a beautifully balanced reading which lays stress on the lyricism; the orchestral support could hardly be improved upon.

Gramophone
... a modern classic now available in a splendidly vivid stereo performance: Prokofiev's G minor Violin Concerto, with David Oistrakh as soloist and the PhiIharmonia at its best." "The start of the Violin Concerto No.1 is ravishingly beautiful ... if you are merely interested in violin playing, then this is a lesson in itself ... Oistrakh's performance is in itself really wonderful.
