Description

Leonid Kogan (1924-1982), a Russian violinist born in the Ukraine, is considered to be one of the greatest technical violinists. His style is regarded as more modern while less idiosyncratic than those of some of his contemporaries. Leonid Kogan ranked among the best representatives of the Russian-Jewish tradition of violin playing. He was praised for the intensity of his sound, and the expressive range in the singing tone of his violin. Kogan shunned publicity, and as a result his career became overshadowed by his good friend David Oistrakh who was strongly promoted by Soviet authorities. Here, he plays Bachs Sonata No.3 for Solo Violin and Prokofievs Sonata in D Major Op. 94 for Violin and Piano. Personnel: Leonid Kogan (violin), Ephraim Koenigh (piano)
