“[In K.219, David Oistrakh’s] innate musicality shone through… [he] should be heard if you don’t mind a much fuller tone in Mozart… distinguished by [his] beautiful phrasing… very sympathetically supported by the Dresden Orchestra and Konwitschny.”
“[Oistrak’s K.218 is] very romantic… a legendary violinist at his absolute peak, recorded in better sound than possible then in his own country and sympathetically supported.”
“[K454 is] a warmly cosseted account of Mozart’s great B-flat Sonata, with Yampolsky providing trim pianistic support.” – Gramophone
