Genuinely historic.

There are some CD recordings you’d rather not say much about or hear people discuss. Instead, all you want to do is be completely immersed in the beauty of what has been recorded. David Oistrakh and Paul Badura-Skoda performing Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert. A recording with these artists is reason enough to settle back and give this GENUIN disc your undivided attention. Learning, too, that this recording would be Oistrakh’s last recital performance lends this release an added historic quality. It is hard not to get the impression that that the twentieth century’s greatest musicians have lined up on to pay homage to the violinist.

"The composure with which Oistrach allows Schubert’s A-Major Sonata to repose has the effect of one big understatement. Nonetheless, the lyrical qualities of the underestimated piece can nowhere be experienced more beautifully, freshly and naturally than in this newly-issued live recording of the last recital."
