Along with his friend Caruso, Fritz Kreisler (1875–1962) was one of the superstars of the early gramophone era. He was “the master musician among the violinists of the day” (New York Times); he died 50 years ago (29 January 1962). As a composer, he is famous for his Viennese-style melodies, such as Liebesfreud and Liebesleid, for his notorious pieces “in the style of” various 18th-century masters (which he passed off as their original works, claiming to have rediscovered them in old manuscripts), and for his arrangements of well-known works by other composers.

It began with a piece which I fell in love with: Eugène Ysaÿe’s Poème élégiaque. You have to tune the bottom violin string a tone lower. That explains the dark character, which you hear particularly in the middle, which is a funeral march. Ysaÿe dedicated it to Gabriël Fauré. And so the idea for this CD was born: violin music by composers who honoured and inspired one another.

Vadim Repin suggests in the booklet’s notes that he and Nikolai Lugansky chose a program for their first studio recording together that mimics a recital in this case, that would be a sonata recital. This sonata the introductory passage, Lento doloroso , of Edvard Grieg’s Second Sonata displays in the duo’s performance a haunting poignancy that their energetic reading of the movement proper hardly dispels.

New chamber compositions by Telemann are now made available through intensive research. They are presented in modern score editions focusing on the Magdeburg Sunday Concerts (Sonntagsmusiken). The arias include pieces taken from complete sacred compositions and performed in Hamburgs principal places of worship during the church year 1726-27. The Eisenach court secretary Johann Friedrich Helbig was the author of the texts for the church compositions and the arias included in them.

This three-CD set showcases Beethoven's most famous Violin Sonatas in multiple performances by some of the 20th century's greatest violin/piano duos. A virtual master class in Golden Age interpretation, this collection features three performances of the "Spring" Sonata and four of the "Kreutzer" Sonata, ranging from Georg Kulenkampff and Wilhelm Kempff's "Kreutzer" in 1935 to Nathan Milstein and Arthur Balsam's "Spring" in 1950. The set also includes the celebrated 1940 "Kreutzer" performance at the Library of Congress by Joseph Szigeti and Bela Bartók. To recapture the magic of these performances for a new century, rare, pristine 78s were transferred and 24-bit digitally remastered using the state-of-the-art CAP 440 technique.

This 7th volume of Fritz Kreisler’s complete recordings takes us to the end of his acoustic sessions and to the first to use the new Victor electric system. Kreisler was exceptionally busy after the turmoil of WWI with a comeback in America, groundbreaking global tours, and a warm welcome back to England after being considered an ‘enemy alien’ during the war. At HMV he was joined by cellist Hugo Kreisler, whose fine singing legato adds a breath of Viennese style to the sound. At the introduction of microphone recording with its heightened realism and fidelity, Fritz Kreisler’s playing was still at its peak, also benefitting from his favourite 1733 Stradivarius in Victor’s New York studio.

Eugene Ysaÿe was one of the greatest violinists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He studied under Henri Vieuxtemps and is considered one of the great exemplars of the famous Franco-Belgian school of violin playing whose more recent members include Arthur Grumiaux and Augustin Dumay. Ysaÿe was also a composer of distinction, and his six sonatas for solo violin are after those of J.S Bach are works of major importance in the violinist’s repertoire. Each sonata is named after a great fellow violinist and dedicated to them, and the music reflects their personalities – an obvious hint at who the composer thought would be the ideal interpreter! These works are gems that deserve a wider audience, and in performances as impressive as these by the young Venezuelan virtuoso Giovanni Guzzo they are certain to win new friends.

Metamorphosis - for me - has always been a concept taken from the script of a film noir and occasionally translated into real life - or culled from a Hitchcock movie or from Alice in Wonderland. From a purely aesthetic (and artistic) point of view I have been especially interested in two things - creating the "inexistent" and transforming "worlds", and also in consolidating what is invisible to the human eye, or what is inaudible to the human ear.
