The Violin - The Kreisler Story

Andrew Manze explores the life and music-making of the Austrian-born violinist Fritz Kreisler, including his performances of Bach and Schubert's `Duo in A' with his friend Rachmaninov playing the piano. Plus some of Kreisler's own pieces played by Oscar Shumsky, Joshua Bell - and Kreisler himself in his evergreen `Liebesleid' and `Liebesfreud'.
