Notes & Reviews:

Along with his friend Caruso, Fritz Kreisler (1875 - 1962) was one of the superstars of the early gramophone era. He was "the master musician among the violinists of the day" (New York Times); he died 50 years ago (29 January 1962). As a composer, he is famous for his Viennese-style melodies, such as Liebesfreud and Liebesleid, for his notorious pieces "in the style of" various 18th-century masters (which he passed off as their original works, claiming to have rediscovered them in old manuscripts), and for his arrangements of well-known works by other composers. We remember one of the world's greatest violinists with an enticing 2CD set that includes a first time release on CD of a tribute LP from 1961, original Kreisler recordings, and an array of great modern violinists playing his works.

"Half a century after his death, Fritz Kreisler is as famous as ever, although his reputation has undergone a subtle transformation. In his lifetime, he was a great violinist who composed, whereas now he is a composer who, it is rather dimly recalled, played the violin. The artistry of Kreisler and his contemporaries Bronisaw Huberman, Joseph Szigeti, Erica Morini and Adolf Busch comes as a shock to modern ears. Today, when the old national schools of violin playing have coalesced into a single style, it is difficult to appreciate that such extraordinary individuals once bestrode the concert platform. This set, with 42 tracks totaling more than two hours of music, juxtaposes recordings of Kreisler in his prime (1910–1913) with reinterpretations by modern admirers of his compositions and arrangements." -Broadwayworld.com
