To celebrate the legendary David Oistrakh, for many, one of the greatest violinists ever, Deutsche Grammophon presents a 22-CD box set which brings together for the first time all his recordings for DG, Decca, Philips & Westminster/Melodiya.
Oistrakh held all aspects of violin artistry in perfect balance and made even the most challenging of pieces seem effortless. For many the ideal violinist, he combined fingers of steel with a heart of gold.

– First CD release of Bach Sonatas BWV 1014-1019
– 3 CDs newly remastered for this edition now released on DG for the first time (CDs 12-14 Westminster)

As a bonus, Oistrakh can be heard conducting the Violin Concerto No. 1 by Max Bruch with his son Igor, playing the violin part.
