Great artists of the century is a series of filmed portraits of the lives and works of 3 musical giants of the century: Sviatoslav Richter, David Oistrakh & Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. These 3 artists, along with Menuhin, Rostropovich, Casals and Callas, represent a truly golden era of great artists, not only remembered for their extraordinary live performances, but whose musicianship has also left to the world an unrivalled legacy of recordings. David Oistrakh (1908-1974), nicknamed 'King David' by his countrymen, was among the greatest violinists of his day, and the most characteristic representative of the Russian school. This film tells the dramatic story of an inspired violinist and a man forced by the Soviet regime to confirm to it's iron rule, an artist torn between his devotion to Russia and his passion for the Violin. Includes A Bonus Booklet! DVD5, Linear PCM Stereo
