The absolutely iconic recording from Beethoven’s Triple Concerto: a first-class cast gathering three legendary Russian soloists: violinist David Oistrakh, cellist Mstislav Rostropovich and pianist Sviatoslav Richter, under the imperial baton of Herbert von Karajan. Made in September 1969 at the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin with the Berliner Philharmoniker, this was their only collaboration on disc and the album remains on the very top versions of this work. A performance of supreme distinction and joy.
