“Oistrakh’s (2nd) has never been surpassed … a beautifully balanced reading which lays stress on the lyricism; the orchestral support could hardly be improved upon.” (Penguin Guide) “a modern classic now available in a splendidly vivid stereo performance: Prokofiev’s G minor Violin Concerto, with David Oistrakh as soloist and the PhiIharmonia at its best.” “The start of the Violin Concerto No.1 is ravishingly beautiful … if you are merely interested in violin playing, then this is a lesson in itself … Oistrakh’s performance is in itself really wonderful” (Gramophone)
