Notes & Reviews:

Leopold Stokowski called Oscar Shumsky (1917-2000) "The most astounding genius I have ever heard," and David Oistrakh proclaimed him "one of the world's greatest violinists." These digital recordings date from Shumsky's return to the European concert platform in the 1980s, after an absence of almost half a century. This specially priced 3 CD set from Nimbus is the perfect way to get acquainted with the Oscar Shumsky legend; a legend that is all too little known.
