About

“Similar feelings (soaring spontaneity and deeply perceptive intelligence) attend his readings of the Shostakovich concertos - added to which is my growing certainty that this version of No.1 (accompanied by the great Mravinsky) is his finest. ... It was with Mravinsky and the Leningrad that Oistrakh (as dedicatee) gave the first performance ... Oistrakh plays as impeccably as ever, and the Leningrad Philharmonic gives admirably vital support” (op.129) “taken as a whole, this is a most rewarding work and gets a most eloquence performance from Oistrakh who plays with his familiar virtuosity and sweetness of tone.” – Gramophone
