HDTT has made me very happy! I owned the vinyl edition of this gorgeous version of Shostakovich’ violin concerto in the Eighties, and lost the record over time by moving houses. I have been looking for a digital version for many years. The purchase through HDTT was easy and swift, and the sound is excellent! Many thanks! Ferenc van Damme Zwolle, The Netherlands
Apropos earlier reviews
(This is Igor Oistrakh; not King David.)
Lovely remastering of classic Oistrakh
Not his best
Oistrakh made a speciality of the Shostakovich concerto, and recorded it several times. But this is not his best. For performance go for the Leningrad/Mravinsky (no surprise!) and for sound the NPO/Maxim Shostakovich. This Melodiya is a very claustrophobic recording and Oistrakh sounds not at all at his best.
