    Default Russian greats

    To those of you who love violin virtuosi, I strongly recommend to get any recording
    you can find of those guys:
    Eduard Grach
    Igor Politkovsky
    Yulian (or Julian) Sitkovetsky
    Andrei Korsakoff
    Boris Goldstein (or Golshtein)
    Samuiil Furer
    Elizabetta Gilels (yes,the sister)
    Oleg Kagan
    Viktor Pikhaizen
    All of them were just great.

    It would be nice to hear them play live. Sadly I don't have those kinds of connections

    Grach, Kagan and Pikaizen are alive. Gilels I think is alive too. And you can add Valery Igorovich Oistrakh.
