Notes & Reviews:
Along with Fritz Kreisler, Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein and Yehudi Menuhin, David Oistrakh is universally recognized not only as one of the few truly great violinists of the last century but as one of music's most striking personalities. As a result of the political situation of the time Oistrakh's career in Western Europe, America and Japan blossomed relatively late. His first proper international tour instantly confirmed the legend and from then until his death in Amsterdam in 1974 he pursued a varied career in the concert hall, as soloist and conductor, and as a teacher. This portrait by Bruno Monsaingeon shows the inspired violinist as musician and private person through extensive interviews with Oistrakh's long-time friends and fellow artists.
