The magical arrangements of Fritz Kreisler’s Liebesleid and Liebesfreud were written in 1921 and 1925, a time of emotional anguish. They stand as proof of the legendary technique, the richness and transparency of polyphony characterizing Rachmaninoff’s art and opening the door to a modern style of piano performance of unrivalled beauty and perfection.
