Bruch, Hindemith, David Oistrakh, London Symphony Orchestra, Horenstein ‎– Scottish Fantasia / Violin Concerto


If this album coupling David Oistrakh's magical and magisterial performances of Bruch's Scottish Fantasia and Hindemith's Violin Concerto is no better than a pristine copy of the original Decca LP, we'll never know, but as things stand, this disc is as close to ideal as is imaginable. Listen just to the last few bars of the Introduction to Bruch's Fantasia — the physical sense of Oistrakh's ineffably beautiful tone is palpable. The performances themselves are superlative — Jascha Horenstein leads the London Symphony in a detailed accompaniment for Oistrakh's expressive performance of Bruch's Fantasia, and Paul Hindemith himself leads the LSO in an aggressive accompaniment for Oistrakh's muscular performance of his own concerto — but anyone with the slightest interest in the art of recording and remastering owes it to themselves to hear this disc.
