Thank you very much to our friend Jean-Luc for this gem
No one even came close to recording the Beethoven Sonatas as well as Oistrakh and Oborin, the two play as though they were one.
While one can argue that the tempos may stray from Beethoven’s markings, I dare you to try to find a recording more full of emotion and warmth and that is the most important element to me. Music means nothing if it has no feeling even if it is perfectly executed. The melodies soar like they should and Beethoven would have no choice but to smile if he heard these performances.
It may be true that some or even many of Oistrakh’s recordings do not sound unlike a performance in a tin can, that is simply not the case here.

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.
