Like his idol, Chopin, Leopold Godowsky wrote almost exclusively for solo piano. The only pieces that Godowsky wrote for instruments other than piano are works for violin. This master's complete collection of original compositions for violin and piano are offered in a handsome book that includes detailed biographical information about the composer, notes on the pieces, and features the extensive fingerings and bowings by legendary violinist Fritz Kreisler.
