Itzhak Perlman, Samuel Sanders
"Perlman plays Fritz Kreisler" (Vinyl)

The first of three albums that would be released on Angel/EMI, this is Perlman the romantic showing off with a list of compositions by the renowned 19th century violinist, Fritz Kreisler.
Known today more for his compositions, Kreisler is still in heavy rotation amongst the violinists, primarily because of champions like Perlman that canonized the tradition of using Kreisler as an encore during recitals.

The image is from an EMI Classics re-issue on CD - I have a vinyl copy released on Angel from a few years earlier...
