Tchaikovsky – Violin Concerto In D Major Op 35
1 in stock
Maxim Vengerov has said that Tchaikovsky’s ‘Violin Concerto’ is the greatest of all the violin concertos because Tchaikovsky wasn’t concerned with meeting some arbitrary standard of virtuosity required in a concerto. David Oistrakh's 1954 performance of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's ‘Violin Concerto in D major’ sounds, despite its apparent age, remarkably fresh and full in this digital remastering and listeners who usually avoid historic recordings because of their limited audio quality really should give this superb reissue a chance. Oistrakh was the most important violinist from the Soviet Union during the middle decades of the 20th century, and his performances of the great concertos made him an international star.
