Notes & Reviews:

The violinist David Oistrakh is one of those musicians whose fame crossed many borders both physically and in time. He died over 30 years ago but is still a household name. This Russian musician won many prizes including first at the Ysae Concours in Brussels, Belgium. This was the start of his international career. His style evolved from elegant to more monumental. His technique was impeccable, his tone warm. Oistrakh readily played new music and many Soviet composers dedicated work to him. He was not only one of the greatest violinists of his time but also a gifted conductor. There are many recordings of Oistrakh's. In this 10 CD set we present part of this heritage. Some of these concertos are better known than others: Mendelssohn, Shostakovich (1 and 2), Prokofiev, Beethoven, Sibelius, Kabalevsky, Katchaturian etc.
