#music #4: David Oistrakh – Brahms Violin Sonata No 3

David Oistrakh plays the Brahms Violin Sonata No 3 opus 108. The Violin Sonata gives me a warm feeling inside. It starts soft and goes slowly to a deeper emotional level. He composed this sonata between 1878 and 1888. The first time I listened to this violin sonata was on the radio when I was about ten years old. If I remember this well, at that time my sister was rehearing this violin sonata as well. So I heard this almost all day long for a few days straight. Since then I love this piece very much. Brahms also wrote two violin sonatas before and also other great work for violin.

The violinist David Oistrakh is one of the great violinists I have ever heard! He was born in the Russian Empire (now Ukraine).

For more performances of this violin sonata by other performers, you can watch it on YouTube.
