Penguin Guide, January 2009

Kreisler is at his very peak in this wonderful, poetically rich account of the Beethoven Concerto, particularly the ravishing account of the Larghetto which causes one to catch the breath at the rapt, Elysian quality of its expressive climax, while the finale releases the tension and is engagingly light-hearted. In Mark Obert-Thorn’s splendid transfer, the 1926 recording, one of the very first made electrically (in the warm acoustic of the Berlin Singakademie), is astonishingly lifelike, and brings Kreisler’s violin vividly into one’s presence. Whichever recordings of the Beethoven you already have, this one is a must, with the Bach Adagio making a treasurable encore.
