Fritz Kreisler 復刻Labコレクション♪

April 14, 2024
(May 31, 2024 update)

クライスラーが無性に聞きたくなる季節があって、そんなときのためのページです。
機械吹込みの時代の録音には何とも言えないアンニュイな雰囲気があります。
気力と技術の充実していた電気録音初期までを特に好んで聴いています。

There are seasons when I have an irresistible urge to listen to Chrysler, and this page is for those times.
Acoustic Recordings from the era have an indescribable air of ennui.
I especially like to listen to the early days of his electric recordings, when he was full of energy and technique.

Fritz Kreisler - Concerto for Two Violins (in D minor) (Bach) [Disque Pour Gramophone 2-07918/22] (January 4, 1915)

クライスラーとジンバリストによる1915年録音のバッハ。このレコードをこの曲のベスト盤にあげる人もいます。
78.0rpm再生時ではA=456Hzと非常に高いため、ある程度下げています。
Victor原盤、フランスのDisque Pour Gramophone盤

Recorded in 1915 by Kreisler and Zimbalist.
At 78.0 rpm playback, A=456 Hz, which is very high, so it is turned down to some extent.
The recording was made by Victor, French Disque Pour Gramophone disc.

Fritz Kreisler - CONCERTO IN E MINOR (Mendelssohn,Op.64) [Victor M19] (December 9-10, 1926)
Fritz Kreisler - A MAY BREEZE (Song Without Words) (Mendelssohn-Kreisler) [Victor M19] (December 14, 1926)

クライスラーの残した三大協奏曲はレコードの回転数に問題があり、特に1926年12月の一連の録音にA=456-457Hz相当やA=460Hz以上のピッチの盤がいくつか混ざってます。
この時のベルリンでのセッションではターンテーブルの回転調整がうまくいってなかったようです。
メンデルスゾーンの協奏曲最終面はピッチがA=449Hz相当まで下がり、音も鮮明で楽器のバランスがよくなるため、この面のみ録音日として記録されている日付ではなく、少しあとの録音かもしれません。
近い時期のベルリン国立歌劇場のオケ録音では、他レーベルや数年後のHMV録音を調べると大体A=446-450Hzの幅の印象なので、今回は第7面のA=449Hzで全体を合わせてあります。(調査が進んだら変えるかも)

Kreisler's three major concertos have problems with the rpm of the recordings, especially a series of recordings made in December 1926, with a few discs with pitches equivalent to A=456-457 Hz or higher than A=460 Hz mixed in.
It seems that the turntable rotation was not well adjusted during the sessions in Berlin at this time.
The final side of Mendelssohn's concerto has a pitch that drops to the equivalent of A=449 Hz, and the sound is clearer and the instruments are more balanced, so this side may be a slightly later recording, rather than the date recorded as the recording date only for this side.
In the orchestra recordings of the Berlin State Opera in the near future, I have the impression that the range is generally A=446-450Hz when I examine other labels and HMV recordings made a few years later, so I have aligned the entire recording with A=449Hz on the 7th side this time. (I may change this if my research progresses)
