One of the Greatest Violinists Ever

David Oistrakh was one of the greatest violinists to have ever lived. In my ever-so-humble opinion, the greatest. Here he is playing Ravel's Tzigane.

His bow was made by this guy. A great bow. I know because I have one too. The violin is probably the 1702 Conte di Fontana Stradivarius (actually he played 7 violins by Stradivarius).

UPDATE: Here is an excellent performance of the same work by Isaac Stern with a symphony orchestra (I don't know which). Enjoy.
