Continuing the Classic Concerts via Radio France Musique this week with another one featuring the ORTF Orchestra conducted by the legendary Jean Martinon. Soloist this time is the equally legendary Russian Violinist David Oistrakh in an all Russian program, originally broadcast in 1971.
Here’s what’s on the player this week:
ORTF National Orchestra, dir. Jean Martinon – David Oistrakh, violin
2. Shostakovich: Concerto No. 2 for Violin and Orchestra op.129 David Oistrakh, violin
3. Piotr Ilyich TCHAIKOVSKY :Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique” in B min op. 74
(Archive INA -Register: 10/10/1971 TEC Paris)
As I said last week, this is a truly remarkable series France Musique has put together, which will continue throughout August. Other memorable conductors in the series include Sergiu Celibidache, Kurt Masur and Leonard Bernstein. I don’t know if there plans for earlier concerts with Andrè Cluytens, but . . . it would be nice.
In any event – a great concert and another one gratefully preserved.
