75 minutes is too short?
Well, yes and no. Yes, who wouldn't like more? And no, because we are almost given everything we could possibly expect from any DVD.
The photography of this DVD is most excellent, even better than the Menuhin issued in the same year. The crews here obviously knew a lot about music: how we play a violin and the piano. It's filmed from an angle that is most natural. The studios in Paris were so homely. In Spring Sonata, the room was well furnished, decorated with one or two portraits of Beethoven, and there was even a vase full of blooming flowers in the background!
There are also reasons to believe that this was filmed not only for amusement but also as a teaching aid. Very often , we can see Oistrakh's fingerings, phrasings, vibratos, bowings sometimes at the same time and occasionally from a most illuminating angle!
The photographer obviously understood that it's a Sonata for both the violin and piano. There are also close-ups of the pianist ( sometime including and sometimes just his hands and fingers like doing the staccatos, legatos and legatos on repeated notes etc) wherever appropriate. The pianist was Lev Oborin, the first Chopin Competition gold medalist and teacher of Ashkenazy. Both played beautifully and poetically. Every minute is enjoyable, no matter it was the painist or the violinist or both. It's so close to Rachmaninoff/Kreisler, and any difference is really marginal (I mean both parts, and the latter was recorded in 1930's and we only have audio CD.) To those who have been listening to Oistrakh's Beethoven Sonatas for years, it would certainly be a joy to see him playing it. Spring Sonata alone is worth every cent of the money, the rest is gratuitous!
Their Schubert is likewise superb.

One can't help but feel somewhat tricked with this DVD. Why? Simply because there are far more clips of Oistrakh that were worthy of inclusion, including the entire Brahms concerto, Locatelli Labyrinth, Sibelius Concerto, Khachaturian Concerto, numerous Kreisler pieces, etc... Those clips were, to my mind, a good deal more interesting than most of the offerings on this well-photographed, well-restored, and all-round decent DVD. Nonetheless, it is always a pleasure to see Oistrakh, as his artistry is truly wonderful. Not just for die-hard Oistrakh fans, but also not my first choice for videos of him.

"David Oistrkh [IMPORT]" The correct last name is Oistrakh. A rare glimpse at one of the greatest violinist of all times.

Like some other BBC early-TV classical music presentations, this one is earnest and dull. Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata especially lacks vitality. Be warned that (1) the very detailed mono sound is recorded on the left channel only--the right channel is soundless--and (2) the Brahms Concerto bonus consists of the third movement alone. Oistrakh is more commanding in the shorter pieces on this disc.

We are talking about David Oistrakh here who is one of the very best violinist ever.
In this DVD you can still enjoy the warmth of his sound.
It's a must buy for any violinists out there!!!
And check out Rudolf Schwarz (He conducts the Brahms concerto).
He has the funniest baton works ever...
