Notes & Reviews:

Hyperion is delighted to welcome award-winning violinist Jack Liebeck to the label, together with his frequent collaborator, Katya Apekisheva. Liebeck presents a selection of music by the legendary Viennese violinist and composer Fritz Kreisler. Clever and mischievous, Kreisler's works were once passed some off as those of composers of the past until New York Times critic Olin Downes discovered the deception and it made front-page news worldwide. This selection includes Kreisler's absurdly virtuosic arrangement of The Devil's Trill by Tartini. Kreisler's edition, incorporating a realization of the figured bass as well as fingerings and phrasings, provides a fearsome cadenza involving triple- and quadruple-stopping as well as two and three-note trills.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2014
In contrast to the concert-hall projection of Perlman, Liebeck plays these timeless miniatures with a salonesque intimacy and glowing cantabile to rival even the composer.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
Liebeck is a fine player - no doubt about that - with a firm tone and rock-solid technique. The 1785 'Ex-Wilhelmj' Guadagnini he plays fills St George's, Bristol, with commanding ease...Apekisheva is an alert and most sensitive accompanist, sticking to her partner like a limpet.

Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 31st March 2014
An hour in the company of Messrs. Liebeck and Kreisler is very definitely time well spent, and it struck me as I listened that in a sense the relationship between Liebeck's playing and Kreisler's interpretations is a nice reflection of that between Kreisler and his 'Old Masters': underpinned by an obvious affection and understanding of the earlier style, yet always infused with freshness and individuality.

The Observer, 17th April 2014
These are so refreshingly bright and zestful they feel like new pieces...perhaps the most impressive performance in the entire collection is the conquering of Kreisler's adaptation of Tartini's Devil's Trill sonata, which surrenders completely to Liebeck and Katya Apekisheva's formidable technique.
