The 1960 famous recording by David Oistrakh and Otto Klemperer with French National Radio Orchestra, known as one of the best recordings of Brahms' violin concerto, is finally on SACD. In addition, to the disc added Beethoven's Triple Concerto with Sir Malcolm Sargent & Philharmonia Orchestra recorded in 1958. For this reprint, have been used a new master that was digitized at 96kHz/24bit from the original master, and mastered to the SACD layer and CD layer separately.

Brahms's first and only violin concerto was mocked as being not with but 'against the violin'. This cutting remark was less directed at the tricky passages, which made enormous demands on the technical dexterity from the even the greatest virtuosi, but rather more at the challenge of asserting his small violin against the large orchestra. It was not only the soloist who had to possess star qualities in this symphonic masterwork, but the orchestra too. Otto Klemperer, who here proves his highly competent command of the tightly knit score. His celebrated analytic comprehension delves deep into the complex score and brings all the details together to create a melodious entity, whereby the French National Orchestra play with total commitment. David Oistrakh answers with a saturated tone and broad gestures on the violin. He lets the expansive melodies of the gigantic first movement emerge with wide sweeps of his bow, fills the slow movement with a wealth of lyrical sentiment, and in the fiery last movement he displays his entire skill as a brilliant virtuoso who amalgamates dancelike exuberance with dramatic presence. A truly referential recording!

In addition, although the coupling is definitely less shadowy than the Karajan version (generally speaking), to the disc have been added the Sargent's version of Triple Concerto, recorded in 1958. This is also excellent in both performance and recording. Since they are well-known soloists, they are performing famous performances that permeate their hearts…
