  1. Ah Frank...the mother of all Beethoven Violin Concertos...doesn't get any better than Kreisler. I feel the same about Schnabel in the somatas and concertos. Great stuff!

    1. The LP is not too difficult to find in the UK, but any later EMI CD probably wouldn't be using this Bryan Crimp transfer - which is quite good.

  5. Many thanks for this - never heard such a performance before, remarkably romantic.

    1. Yes..very nice - and the violin sounds quite realistic too (given the early date).

    2. Indeed, just like the notes promise, the violin-tone is still there - even after some way from the original..

    Thanks. I've been searching for this recording. It's good to hear Kriesler playing his own cadenzas.
