January 16, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Special passion Oistrakh was ensemble playing.
«I very much like chamber music. It gives great joy not only students, but primarily by the participants ».

Game with worthy partners perceived them as a form of intellectual and at the same time the heart of communication.

Many years there was a surprisingly harmonious duet with pianist David Oistrakh, Lev Oborin and the famous trio, when they were joined by cellist Svyatoslav Knushevitsky. Despite intense solo concerts and work in the conservatory, they tried as often as possible to gather for joint rehearsals.
From the review of the trio tour in Leipzig:
«We often hear how the performance of chamber works excellent soloists, with all perfect, each member of the ensemble remained soloist, playing in the foreground. The Soviet guests all in a different way: each subject a whole, while remaining humble servant of the performed music. A perfect play music band can hardly be imagined. »

Oistrakh drawn into the orbit "an ensemble of communication" future world star - Sviatoslav Richter. Igor Oistrakh later recalled that his father often quoted the example of a game Richter, who performed the miracles of ensemble sensitivity. Later, the ensemble joined by Mstislav Rostropovich.
