These performances of Fritz Kreisler's Violin Works by violinist Henryk Szeryng and pianist Charles Reiner may not be the consensus first choice recording -- others still will sift through the tape noise and crackles to listen to Kreisler perform these works himself.
I constantly come back to this LP for a different perspective, and the vibrancy and splendor of that classic sound never disappoints me. The added treat here is rarely recorded compositions by Leclair, Gluck and Locatelli, which are ever bit as enjoyable as the well-known works by Kreisler.
But, if one is to choose between Oistrakh or Szeryng as far as these pieces are concerned, I definitely prefer the latter!
