Kreisler had relatively few concertos in his active repertoire and he recorded even fewer. The performances here were set down under very different circumstances. The Bruch was done at the tail end of the acoustic era: the soloist stood in front of a large horn, not daring to move too much in case he affected the quality of the sound - inhibiting for a string player - while the small orchestra was crammed in behind him; double basses did not register so tubas were used instead. Kreisler was a recording veteran but his conductor was the inexperienced Eugene Goossens, which may account for three days of sessions being needed. Of the six sides which were submitted to Kreisler for his approval, only one was a first take; and one was a seventh. For commercial reasons the set was never issued and in its 78rpm form it became a super-rarity, only one copy being known to exist. The interpretation is of immense interest, in spite of the caveats expressed by Mark Obert-Thorn in his note; it is also very beautiful. For some reason the legendary producer at His Master's Voice, Fred Gaisberg, never persuaded Kreisler to redo the Bruch in the electric process which came in during 1925.
