From Sander MarcusHappy Birthday, Mr. Oistrakh. Your recording of the Ysaye Sonata 3 (Ballade) is still my all-time-favorite.

From Paul DeckWhen I saw "Igor" in the title I thought first of Igor Politkovsky, who was a student of David Oistrakh!

From carlos majlisPoor Politkovsky died very young in 1984, a really disgrace because he was extraordinary. He had IMO one of the most beautiful sounds I ever heard on a violin. He couldn't leave Russia, and there are very few recordings, but all are just wanderful.
