“Oistrakh’s justly renowned performances … the playing is peerless. In the Bach Double Concerto, father and son are suitably contrasted in timbre and the performance of the great slow movement is Elysian.” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
“The soloists play on the string almost throughout, with much less staccato than most listeners will be used to … and there is some delightful and assured playing all through. (Vivaldi): … the harpsichord comes to life with a vengeance, being especially enterprising in the finale. The playing of the two soloists is, needless to say, the height of efficiency.” (Gramophone)
