(1-3) - Recorded in 1984, Igor Oistrakh (violin) - Moscow State Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra -Valentin Zhuk
(4-6) - Recorded in 1985, Igor Oistrakh, Natalia Zertsalova, Ensemble of the Soloists of Moscow State Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra - Valentin Zhuk

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of Joseph Haydn’s and Edward Elgar’s violin concertos performed by Igor Oistrakh.

Igor Oistrakh is the son of David Oistrakh, one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century. He studied violin under famous teacher Pyotr Stoliarsky, graduated from the conservatory and finished his

post-graduate course under his father. Since he was young his play was distinguished with high technical mastery and bright individuality without copying his father’s style. Suffice it to mention his triumphs at the international competitions in Budapest in 1949 and Poznan in 1952, his appearances with some of the best musicians of the century such as Pablo Casals, Yehudi Menuhin, Leonid Kogan and Vladimir Spivakov, and his work with the leading conductors such as Herbert von Karajan, Otto Klemperer, Eugene Ormandy, Carlo Maria Giulini, Georg Solti, Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Evgeny Svetlanov and Gennady Rozhdestvensky.

Igor Oistrakh was the first Soviet violinist to play the Violin Concerto by Edward Elgar, a prominent English composer who raised national music to the global level for the first time in two hundred years. Dedicated to violinist Fritz Kreisler, the concerto unveils the violin’s rich virtuosic, timbre and emotional potential and is a fertile ground for a true master of violin performing art. Igor Oistrakh is accompanied by the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra led by talented violinist and conductor Valentin Zhuk.

The album also features Joseph Haydn’s Double Concerto for violin and piano. Igor Oistrakh performs it together with Natalia Zertsalova, his long-standing ensemble partner and a pupil of Yakov Flier.

The great violinist David Oistrakh realised his ambition to conduct in 1961and from then until his last concert in Moscow in 1974, combined solo and conducting work. A Viennese newspaper wrote “A world-known violinist being a top-class conductor at the same time is an extraordinary phenomenon.”

It was in 1961 when the great violinist Oistrakh realized his old dream of conducting for the first time. Since then, until his last concert in Moscow in October 1974, where Brahms’s second symphony was performed, the musician combined solo and conducting work appearing to his audiences as a conductor of the Orchestra of Moscow Philharmonic Society, Big Symphony Orchestra of All - Union Radio, and with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Teatro alla Scala Orchestra and other celebrated collectives. “A world - known violinist being a top class conductor at the same time is an extraordinary phenomenon. And David Oistrakh is a remarkable conductor,” wrote one of the Viennese newspapers in 1966. This Firma Melodiya release features compositions by Édouard Lalo (Symphonie espagnole), Hector Berlioz (Harold in Italy) and Johannes Brahms (Violin concerto in D major, Op. 77 Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73) performed by the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by David Oistrakh.

Melodiya presents a complete set of orchestral music by one of the most influential domestic composers of the 20th century Tikhon Khrennikov.

The musician headed the USSR Union of Composers for more than fifty years combining crucial organizational activities with a busy creative and educational work.

His compositions were performed by some of the leading orchestras, music theatres and best-known performers of the Soviet Union. Then, due to social and political rather than artistic reasons, many of his works were consigned to oblivion.

The featured symphonic and concert works by Tikhon Khrennikov are performed by such outstanding conductors as Evgeni Svetlanov, Dmitri Kitayenko and Maxim Shostakovich, and soloists as Mstislav Rostropovich, Vadim Repin and others.

Firma Melodiya presents an anniversary set dedicated to Vladimir Spivakov’s 70th birthday.
This outstanding musician is well-known and loved across the world. A violinist, educator, conductor, founder and permanent leader of the chamber orchestra Moscow Virtuosi and the National Symphony Orchestra of Russia, an organizer of the charity trust that supports talented children, a director of international music festivals both in Russia and overseas, a jury member of a number of violin competitions, and the president of the Moscow International House of Music. Maestro Spivakov’s artistic and social activities only broaden through the years - he performs all over the world, renews his violin and conducting repertoire playing with some of the best soloists and conductors.
The 5-CD set features Vladimir Spivakov as both a violinist and conductor on recordings made in 1970s to 1990s. That period of performing activity and creation of the Moscow Virtuosi was a bright phase in the maestro’s career leaving an unforgettable trace in performing arts of this country and the world. The chamber pieces by Schubert, Locatelli, Franck, Debussy, Ravel, Milhaud, Bartók and Prokofiev, and virtuosic numbers by Paganini, Wieniawski and Saint-Saëns were recorded with remarkable pianists such as Viktoria Postnikova and Boris Bekhterev; one of the CDs is dedicated to Mozart (Symphony No. 28 and the Coronation Mass) while another is dedicated to Rodion Shchedrin (Carmen Suite and also Music for the Town of Köthen written especially for Spivakov).
Spivakov’s earlier unreleased concert recordings at the 4th International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1970 are of particular interest. The violinist was awarded the second prize and a silver medal at the competition for his performance of Sibelius’s and Tchaikovsky’s violin concertos, and Tchaikovsky’s, Sarasate’s and Shchedrin’s pieces.

"On stage, Oistrakh produces an impression of a colossus. He firmly stands on the ground, he holds his violin proudly, and he creates music that finds expression in an endless stream of beauty and grace", wrote the great violin player Isaac Stern. Among the numerous famous performers the 20th century gave to the world, David Oistrakh ranks especially high. "… one of the really great violinists of our time. Oistrakh is great not because he is a virtuoso, but because he is a genuine, inspired musician," wrote the press during his first coming to the United States in 1955. Oistrakh had to play the very first concert of that tour on the same day with performances of Nathan Milstein and Mischa Elman (Joseph Szigeti played on the same day at another venue in New York). Fritz Kreisler who was in the house expressed his admiration for Oistrakh after the concert. Firma Melodiya presents a set of recordings by the great musician of this country. Oistrakh recorded violin concertos by Bach, Mozart, Viotti, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Dvorak, and Taneyev in the 1950s and 1960s in the prime of his performing career jointly with some of the best conductors of the previous century such as Nikolai Malko, Herbert von Karajan, Alexander Gauk, Kirill Kondrashin and Gennady Rozhdestvensky. The performances of Brahms's and Franck's sonatas by David Oistrakh and Sviatoslav Richter also featured in this set once was unanimously recognized by domestic and foreign audiences as one of the best achievements of the 20th century in the field of chamber music.

Disk: 6
Type: CD
Kolekce: Význační umělciPodkolekce: Violin and Orchestra

For the 100th anniversary of the birth of Yehudi Menuhim, one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, Firma Melodiya presents a set of historic recordings of his concerts in Moscow in 1945 and 1962. Yehudi Menuhim had a special place in store for him in the constellation of brilliant violinists of the previous century. He gave his first concert when he was seven years old, debuted with an orchestra at ten, and became famous across the world after his triumphant debut in Berlin at thirteen. Despite the hand illness he went through at the height of his performing career, Menuhin continued to perform as actively until the late 1980s. “As the years go by, his art is getting warmer and more humane…” wrote Lev Raaben. A son of Russian emigrant parents, Yehudi Menuhin visited this country several times. His first tour in November 1945 was an important event. It was the first time when a musician from the allied state came to the USSR. His chamber concerts were accompanied by the pianist Lev Oborin and the concertmaster Abram Makarov. He alternated large scale pieces with miniatures. Although technically imperfect, the phonograms of Menuhin’s Moscow concerts of 1945 and 1962 are still priceless phonographic documents of the era. Some of these featured recordings have not been previously released.
