Label: NAXOS HISTORICAL
Format: COMPACT DISC
Kreisler, Fritz; Lamson, Carl; Kreisler, Hugo; Raucheisen, Michael
Over the course of the twelve months charted in this ninth volume, the 52-year-old Fritz Kreisler made a series of recordings where he set down the standard electric versions of many of his most popular pieces. They include his first ever recording of his own Gipsy Caprice and of Falla’s Cancion as well as a replacement for his acoustic 1912 recording of Schon Rosmarin. Four pieces with his cellist brother Hugo were made in Berlin, whilst some of his greatest playing comes in the Ruralia Hungarica by his former sonata partner Dohnanyi. All preserve the inimitable tonal and expressive beauties of which he was a master.
