2/5 Violin Sonata 1 & 3 (Oistrakh & Richter) / String Qrtt No.6 at Summerfest 99

(David Oistrakh)
I've been looking for some good performances of Beethoven's early Violin Sonatas and recently alexcello1981 shared some archival footage of David Oistrakh and Sviatoslav Richter performing the 1st and 3rd Violin Sonatas (from Russian TV it looks like).  Wonderful performances await...

Beethoven, Violin Sonata No.1 in D, Op.12, No.1

Beethoven, Violin Sonata No.3 in E-Flat, Op.12, No.3

Secondly, here's a more recent concert of some students at SummerFest 99 performing Beethoven's 6th String Quartet, as well as the Grosse Fuge and some Schubert, Brahms and Stravinsky.  The first quartet performance is the best...

"Summerfest99 presents an evening of performances by some of the most promising young artists active in chamber music today. This concert is the culmination of the young ensembles' coaching during SummerFest and features works by Beethoven, Schubert, Stravinsky and Brahms."
