The ICA Classics Legacy series presents a collection of historic performances by some of the world's greatest artists. These performances are released on video for the first time, incorporating rare archive footage that has been expertly and lovingly restored.

The first two performances on this video feature David Oistrakh in one of his favourite performing partnerships, with his son, violinist Igor Oistrakh. Bach's Concerto for Two Violins in D minor, BWV 1043 formed the duo's first foreign engagement whilst Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante was performed two years later in a sell-out performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Kirill Kondrashin, one of Oistrakh's preferred conductors, directs Brahms' Violin Concerto in D major, which has all the warmth and confidence one would expect from a classic Oistrakh recording.
