The German-American violinist plays both the violin and piano parts of Kreisler’s Liebesfreud. The recording was made on 6 April 2020 in Hadelich’s home during the coronavirus lockdown.
Hadelich writes: ’Here is “Liebesfreud” by Fritz Kreisler, one of his most joyful pieces. I love the line in the piano answering the violin line during the waltz section - like two people dancing with each other. This has by far the hardest piano part out of all the Kreisler pieces, but I can tell from the voicings and how things lie on the piano that Kreisler must have played the piano quite well!’
