Brahms: Violin Concerto; Violin Sonata No. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
This isn't the transcendent recording of Brahms' "Violin Sonata in D minor" by David Oistrakh. That was the 1968 live recording with Sviatoslav Richter, a performance so sublime that women sob and men weep during the Adagio. This is merely the very, very great recording of the "Violin Sonata in D minor" by David Oistrakh.
