HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Ludwig van Beethoven – Violin Sonatas Volumes 4 (Oistrakh/Oborin)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this beautiful music
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.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI/Melodiya) Dmitri Shostakovich – Viola Sonata, Violin Sonata (Oistrakh, Druzhinin, Muntyan, Richter)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jan-Luc for this rare gem
The Sonata for Viola and Piano, Op. 147 is the last composition by Dmitri Shostakovich. Completed in July 1975, just weeks before his death, it is dedicated to Fyodor Druzhinin, violist in the Beethoven Quartet. The work received its official premiere in October 1975 with the performing forces of violist Fyodor Druzhinin and pianist Mikhail Muntyan. Appearing at the end of the composer’s compositional output, the Sonata for Viola and Piano effectively represents the bleak, mortality-obsessed late style composition of Shostakovich.
Dmitri Shostakovich composed Sonata for Violin and Piano in G major, Op. 134 in the autumn of 1968 in Moscow, completing it on October 23. It is set in three movements and lasts approximately 31 minutes. It is dedicated to the violinist David Oistrakh, who premiered the work on May 3, 1969 in the Large Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.
