An array of Deutsche Grammophon artists offer their take on Kreisler favourites: Homage to Fritz Kreisler Half a century after his death, Fritz Kreisler is as famous as ever, although his reputation has undergone a subtle transformation. In his lifetime, he was a great violinist who composed, whereas now he is a composer who, it is rather dimly recalled, played the violin. Today, when the old national schools of violin playing have coalesced into a single style, it is difficult to appreciate that such extraordinary individuals once bestrode the concert platform.

Though he was born in Vienna, on 2 Februaryand was always considered the epitome of the yielding, lilting Viennese style, Kreisler actually represented a break with the past.

In he was the youngest student ever to be admitted to the Conservatory, but aged ten he transferred to the Paris Conservatoire, where his teacher was Joseph Massart. After various false starts, in he began a full-time career as a travelling virtuoso, causing a sensation wherever he appeared and influencing countless other string players.


The Great War, in which he served and was kreislee, brought a slight disruption to his progress, as did the coming to power of Hitler in Germany in He was badly injured when he was knocked over by a truck in Kreeisler York and his career never recovered, although he played on until Liegesfreud died in New York on 29 January Four of them were published in as Classical Manuscripts. Tambourin chinois was acknowledged from the start as an original inspiration. It was remade in at one of his earliest American sessions the version here and again in London the following year.

The tributes by other famous violinists have value in themselves, but also include pieces that Kreisler did not record. Ruggiero Ricci interestingly takes a virtuoso view.
