About the album
Even four decades after his death, violinist David Oistrakh commands the highest admiration among fans, critics, and other performers as one of the most loved and admired musicians of all time. This is DOREMI’s sixth volume featuring David Oistrakh’s recordings and live broadcasts for the first time in digital and compact disc format. The recordings on the present release were made in 1945 and 1948, but have been digitally remastered to achieve optimal sound quality. The featured works are compositions by Tchaikovsky, which show Oistrakh’s versatile programming and technical skill. He is joined by the USSR Symphony Orchestra for the Serenade Melancholique for Violin and Orchestra, and by pianist Vladimir Yampolsky on the Meditation for Violin and Piano in D minor.
