5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 27 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prokofiev: Violin Concertos 1 & 2 - Sonata for two violins (MP3 Download)
I've had this on vinyl for years but decided I wanted a download as I'm now listening to more classical music away from home. The concertos are marvelous; highly lyrical with Perlman's violin playing moving between abrasive and wonderfully sweet, and the orchestral moods providing the perfect compliment. For anyone who is finding their way into classical music this a terrific taster of something beyond the more obvious pieces by major composers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Touchstone performances, 8 Jan 2011

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This is a welcome reissue of the monumental recordings of Prokofiev's violin concertos beautifully remastered with vivid sound. These awesome performances by David Oistrakh are in many ways a touchstone for all the violinists in the world, and very few of them can match the sheer beauty of his tone, his technical refinement and artistry. His mind never seems to falter or lose perspective, whether in the fiendishly difficult passages or in the most lyrical moment. One can always sense the music is coming from his innermost being, and that gives the noble beauty to the warm and deeply expressive tone he draws from the instrument. Violin sonata No.2 is played also with the same focus, poetic imagination and the rich tone.

Violin Concerto No.2 (1959 Stereo)
