About

Rostropovich and Oistrakh: The War of the Titans in the Double Concerto by Brahms.

These legends of Russian music, that the Soviet regime jealously kept prisoner for so long, are brought together for a legendary concert: Mstislav Rostropovich and David Oistrakh play the Double Concerto for Violin and Cello by Brahms under the direction of Kirill Kondrashin, another legend. Although the cellist and violinist both feature in the pantheon of musicians, their paths crossed before separating again when Rostropovich left the USSR in 1974. David Oistrakh, unlike his friend Rostropovich, remained in his country at the cost of much harassment.
