KREISLER, Fritz: Complete Recordings, Vol. 1 (1904, 1910)

Fritz Kreisler sold millions of records and gave pleasure to listeners around the world who could never hear him perform live. This disc brings together recordings made in 1904 and 1910 which, despite the recording industry’s infancy and the extraordinary limitations placed on the musicians, are amazingly good in both artistic and technical terms. Alongside several beloved favourites such as Bach’s Air on the G String are several recordings of Kreisler’s own popular compositions, and alternative takes of several musical bon-bons.
