S0063. DAVID OISTRAKH & LEV OBORIN: The Ten Sonatas for Violin and Piano (Beethoven). (Canada) 3-Doremi 7807/09, Live Performances, 18 May, 15, 16 & 19 June, 1962, Salle Pleyel, Paris. Final Copy! - 723724609020
"The complete set of Beethoven violin sonatas presented here is a set of LIVE PERFORMANCES given by David Oistrakh and Lev Oborin in Paris in 1962. It is not the studio recording of the Beethoven sonatas they made in the same year and which was released by Philips and other labels. This live set is marked by its superior, highly intense music making and a magic appeal that makes it clearly preferable to the one made in the studio. Here is David Oistrakh with the great pianist Lev Oborin who was the 1st prize winner of the first Chopin competition in Warsaw (1927), and Aram Khachaturian dedicated to him his piano concerto of 1936. Oborin began his close artistic collaboration with Oistrakh in 1935, and their long association in concerts and recordings, as duo partners and in the David Oistrakh Trio, lasted throughout their lives."
