2. Beautiful choice - I played the first movement in a recital back in 1974;

I was 15 years old at the time. Pretty good for someone who was actually a violist...but that's because we were a UW feeder; the dean of music (Iglitzen was his name) had three children were in orchestra with me, and we had a passel of Julliard quality violinists already there.

Also played the Double Concerto in practice listening to a record of David Oikstraff and Dimitri Rostipovich, with both my violin and my brother's cello trying to follow along with the two greats. I actually prefer the cello part on that one.
The cadenza they played was like birds playing across the sky on a lazy summer day, lifting and following and falling back into the melody...
The year after, I developed arthritis in my hands - not too bad, but it pretty much put a period on any serious plan on being a concert musician when I grew up.

Good Sanity music. Sleep well.

5. I had an old recording by David Oistrakh

He and Isaac Stern were performing some pieces by Vivaldi.
