ArtistsDavid Oistrakh (violin)
Frida Bauer (piano)
David Oistrakh did not part with his violin for more than sixty years, and he left numerous recordings - made in studio and in concert - for us. However, Oistrakh’s studio work during his last years, when he was not that active as a concert performer, is particularly interesting, and his chamber programmes were viewed as true revelations.
Oistrakh renders a songful and sunny world in Schubert’s duet and fantasia, and restrained emotions and hidden drama in Brahms’ first sonata - all with an inimitable, unique intonation and nobility of tone. A sensitive listener might think that the music had waited for its performer for a century.
In those years, Frida Bauer, a remarkable pianist and soloist of the Moscow Philharmonic Society, was the violinist’s ensemble partner.
The recordings were made between 1970 and 1974.
