In an era of great violinists, Kreisler had technique, intellect, tone, and charm. He transcended the domain of "serious" music, performing and recording both "popular" music and the great masterpieces. Greatly influenced by the work of Bruckner and Delibes, Fritz Kreisler has a marvelous gift for harmony and counterpoint. In this particular volume of pastiche pieces, Kreisler demonstrates his musical genius and successfully provides the violin repertoire with idiomatic and satisfying music. Among the pieces included in this collection are those "in the style of" Vivaldi, Stamitz, Porpora, and Couperin, along with pieces such as Toy Soldiers' March, Malaguena, Episode and Romance.
