From Russia with Strings

Vintage Violins, our September series devoted to the great violinists of the past, kicks off with three legendary performers from the Russian school: David Oistrakh (1908-1974), Leonid Kogan (1924-1982) and Nathan Milstein (1904-1992). They bring their trademark Russian expressivity to works by Tartini, Tchaikovsky and Schumann.
