In Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 Oistrakh is partnered by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Alcio Galiera. Oistrakh had been a close friend of the composer and was the dedicate of Prokofiev’s Violin Sonata No. 1. When it came to the recording of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3 there was an initial crisis since the conductor booked for the session failed to arrive. After some discussion with the producer Walter Legge, Oistrakh himself offered to direct the orchestra in addition to playing the solo part. As can be heard on this record, this unforeseen arrangement worked splendidly, and there is a close rapport between the violinist and the Philharmonia.
