Fritz Kreisler is often represented as an indolent charmer, yet it is clear that his vast acclaim was founded on a great deal of hard work in both the concert hall (at the start of the 1913–14 season the great violinist had 90 American concerts scheduled over five and a half months) and the studio, where long sessions were not uncommon. For the main work on this album of American recordings made at the time of the Great War, Bach’s Double Concerto in D minor (slightly abridged so as to fit on three 78rpm sides), Kreisler is joined by the Russian violinist Efrem Zimbalist. The Appendix features three tracks with soprano Geraldine Farrar and the only surviving recording of Kreisler-as-pianist, playing Dvořák’s Humoresque.
