What an awesome performance!! The great David Oistrakh, playing the larger than life Conte de Fontana Stradivarius, in two masterpieces of the violin repertoire-- one romantic, one twentieth century, with Hindemith himself conducting. And in sound surpassing the excellent xrcd cd in spaciousness and subtlety. Credit to Analogue Productions for a great mastering and to the original engineers in 1962 for a brilliant recording. The playing is beyond description. Do not miss this performance!
