About

Volume 6 of this series completes Fritz Kreisler’s acoustic recordings for the Victor Talking Machine Company.

The February 1925 sessions were the final months of acoustic recording techniques and, despite numerous takes, many of the sides were regrettably not passed for release. Fortunately an extremely rare test pressing of the Scherzando from Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole has survived (Track 19) as has an unpublished test pressing from 24 January 1924 of Take 2 of the Tchaikovsky Canzonetta (Track 1), which preserves Kreisler’s hauntingly ‘speaking’ tone and lovely trills.

Kreisler turned 50 in February 1925, but with his sensitive tone and impeccably tuned double-stops he was playing better than ever.
