DAVID OISTRAKH - CHAMBER MUSIC EDITION (10 CDS)

$ 47.49 $ 49.99

Brilliant Classics proudly reissues this unique collection of chamber music masterpieces, ranging from Baroque to 20-century, played by the legendary David Oistrakh with an outstanding cast of players including Sviatoslav Richter, Lev Oborin, Alexander Goldenweiser and Vladimir Yampolski. These live recordings were made between 1947 and 1973. With his supreme technique, enormous precision in rhythm as well as extensive variety in sound, David Oistrakh is one of the most celebrated violinists of the 20th century. This 10-CD release details some of his best chamber music recordings and is filled to the brim with first-rate performances. The compilation effectively documents the development of violin music, simultaneously revealing Oistrakh’s mastering of an extensive repertoire. Beginning with J.S. Bach, who was one of the first composers to write for the instrument independently and whose works are given an overtly romantic appraisal by the Russian maestro, it also traverses a series of Classical compositions – including Mozart’s Sonata No.3 K306 and Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata Op.47. Most of the collection’s space, however, is taken up by a large assortment of 19th- and 20th-century music; this is undoubtedly where Oistrakh’s heart lies, and the violinist shows a strong commitment to pieces from his native country.
