When Fritz Kreisler made his first London recordings towards the end of 1911, he was already wildly popular in Britain. He was equally busy in Berlin and Vienna and visited the United States on occasion. Here is a chance to enjoy light music making of a high order from an era long before the birth of ‘historically informed’ performance practice. Alongside favourites such as Tchaikovsky’s Chant sans paroles are recordings of Kreisler’s own compositions, as well as alternative takes and duplications explained by the HMV and Victor engineers’ constant striving to improve on the sound quality of popular pieces such as Liebesleid and Liebesfreud.
