“Similar feelings (soaring spontaneity and deeply perceptive intelligence) attend his readings of the Shostakovich concertos – added to which is my growing certainty that this version of No.I (accompanied by the great Mravinsky) is his finest. … It was with Mravinsky and the Leningrad that Oistrakh (as dedicatee) gave the first performance … Oistrakh plays as impeccably as ever, and the Leningrad Philharmonic gives admirably vital support” (Op.126) “taken as a whole, this is a most rewarding work and gets a most eloquence performance from Oistrakh who plays with his familiar virtuosity and sweetness of tone.” (Gramophone)
