“Szymanowski is among the most exciting of twentieth century composers … a highly individual style which owes nothing to anyone … Try the first few bars of this recording; I should be surprised if you wanted to (stop) before the end … his early sonata, has many signs of that strange genius … Its melodies, like its structural features, allow a highly personal rather than nationalistic flavour, in this very well recorded performance” … “Oistrakh’s superbly poised and eloquent performance of the Hindemith Concerto … when a great artist does take up a modern work, what a difference it makes! … this is a really outstanding violin concerto – one of the finest of our time; and exquisitely beautiful at times.” (Gramophone)
