David Oistrakh plays "Labyrinth" Caprice in D Major

Somehow, this piece reminds me of the situation we find ourselves in; a true labyrinth with the Russians. Putin must be laughing his ass off at us.

1. When and where was this performance? Such a strange camera angle - lots of daisies?

But a great performance! I am vaguely familiar with the piece (Locatelli) but have never watched it being performed.

3. 12/13 years ago, maybe, or more. Prolly more,

as he died in '74. (30 September [O.S. 17 September] 1908 24 October 1974),

Not familiar with the piece.

4. Those aren't daisies; they're chrysanthemums

And IIRC, this is from the Russian Soviet period, so 30+years ago, possibly more.

And since he died in 74, that makes it at least 45 years ago.

Based on the look and feel it appears to be from the 50's or 60's; The peak of power of the USSR.

So, 70 years ago?
