David Oistrakh's performance here is Absolutely Stunning! This classic recording features the conducting talents of Jascha Horenstein (Bruch) & Paul Hindemith (Hindemith) accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra. David Oistrakh is considered one of the best violinist of the twentieth century, premiering new concerti by Nikolai Miaskovsky and Khachaturian as well as two sonatas by his friend Sergei Prokofiev! This timeless gem is revealed here in all its passion and sonic glory. Mastered directly from the 1962 half-inch analogue tape 15ips tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed on 180g 45rpm Audiophile Vinyl at RTI, this is truly a one-of-a-kind Musical Journey!
"Hindemith's concerto has never before blossomed into such rewarding lyricism. Even the orchestral contribution under the composer himself is strikingly passionate and with the soloist to provide many moments when the ear is ravished by the beauty of phrasing and inflection, the listener has much to enjoy. The recording is one of the very finest ever made of the combination of solo violin and orchestra. The Oistrakh/Horenstein performance completely displaces its competitors. It is marvelously well recorded -- Oistrakh has never sounded so real on a disc before -- and the reading owes nearly as much to the conductor as the soloist. The expansive dignity of the opening of the brass sets shows immediately how fine the orchestral contribution is going to be and Oistrakh's playing throughout is ravishing, raising the statue of the work immeasurably. The slow movement is especially memorable." - Rated 19/20 in Robert Moon, Blue Back Guide
