Yulian Sitkovetsky (1925 - 1958)

A tragically early death deprived concert stages of a significant and powerful violinist in Yulian Sitkovetsky, whom David Oistrakh considered a potentially greater figure than either himself or Leonid Kogan. As with Oistrakh, Yulian’s violin mastery was perpetuated by his son (Dmitry—also included in this volume), although his death precluded their working together.

His recordings reveal a muscular interpreter, in many ways typical of his time. He uses a broad, rich vibrato almost constantly, irrespective of compositional context. This thickness of tone is very different from his son’s playing which, apart from sounding more comfortable to modern ears, is somehow more consciously shaped. Yulian’s playing is, for the most part, a legato conception that predates the sculptured phrasing promoted by historically-informed performers, and yet is also a long way from the survival of such rhetorical ideas heard in recordings of players trained in the nineteenth century.
