Editorial Reviews

Narrated by Erick Friedman

Violin virtuoso David Oistrakh was an artist dedicated to music in all forms; violin, conducting, chamber music and teaching. In the 1930's, following a very successful appearance in a number of competitions, he made a name for himself as a great musician. In the years that followed, his music would then go on to transcend the cultural world.

In this rare and informative program, Oistrakh plays scintillating and emotional performances of such works as the 'Intermezzo' movement from Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole (with piano), excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerti, a movement from Prokofiev's F minor Sonata (with Sviatoslav Richter), a Schumann transcription with piano and more. This historical program documents the great talent of David Oistrakh and is essential viewing for every lover of classical music.

I watched this about 20 years ago. When I saw it in DVD, I immediately bought it. If you are expecting to see a lot of Oistrakh performance footage, you may be disappointed with this video. However, if you are a fan of Oistrakh and would like to know him more from his friends and relatives, this is a pretty good video.

The only thing I don't like is the "narration." Nothing against Erick Friedman, but I would rather see the video with no narration at all but in English subtitle. I want to hear what they said, even though I don't understand Russian....

I came from Russia and am familiar with David Oistrakh violin playing. He was a great performer. Many violinists, as itzhak Perlman for example, consider him as one of the best in the world. But this DVD does not show that. Very superficial.

With a lot of the music played by Oistrakh represented now on DVD as complete compositions, to have clips like this now longer holds the urgency for people to get this. For accuracy, he plays HALF of the "Intermezzo" from the Symphonie Espagnole which is not indicated. (On that piece it seems that is all there is). I pointed this error out to the people at Kultur years ago and they chose to leave it as was. Now they just have been re-releasing their video catalogue on DVD clearly without any real effort to restore picture/sound (even leaving obvious flaws) and not adding any new material.
