Cool Fritz Kreisler

Can you put more Fritz Kreisler in the library?

I am playing the Rondo and the Da Falla Dance from "La Vida breve."
These couldn't be still under copyright, could they?

The music is flaking apart! It would be soo cool to just download
from here, print-- and keep playing .

Thanks,
Joel "Violinner"

Of course, we can consider to publish more by Kreisler. Do you have any preferred title you would like to see here published first? Any your idea is very welcome.

About De Falla, he's still copyrighted composer in most countries but its opera La Vida breve is in the public domain in the US, so potentially we can publish it.

Does your suggested piece is for violin or violin and piano? Is it a transcription? Please, let me know.

Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Default RE: Fritz Kreisler

Mr. Ferrari,

Next to the dance from "La Vida breve,"
the Fritz Kreisler arrangement of the "Mozart rondo in G" (1913 edition) is my favorite.
His arrangement of Corelli's "La Folia" is wonderful.
So are the originals "Siciliene and Rigaudon" and "Tambourin Chinois."

Please consider any or all of these.

Thanks,
Joel

Of course Joel, we'll consider them too.

About De Falla's La Vida breve, actually it is an opera. Do you know if your suggested dance is a stand alone violin and piano transcription by De Falla or someone else? Any more information is very welcome.

Thank you!

Default Fritz Kreisler

Mr. Ferrari,

I have found an edition published by Chester Music, for piano:
http://www.musicroom.com/se/ID_No/0020405/details.html

The piece is, or has been, very popular.
I have found CDs for several instruments for sale on the web.
There are recordings for orchestra, orchestra and guitar, trumpet, violin (Kreisler, Perlman, many others), cello, and two guitars.

Thanks,
Joel

Default Fritz Kreisler

Mr. Ferrari,

My favorite is the 1913 Kreisler arrangement, publisher
Max Eschig, reprinted 1927, by Carl Fischer.
Fischer #B 2028, called 'Danse Espagnole from "La Vida Breve".'

Would you like me to send you a scan of it?
I think my copy will stand up to that, before cracking to bits.

Thanks,
Joel

Of course, we can consider to publish that. If you could send that to us would be great, thank you! We'll work on it.

Thank you again.

He was an Austrian-born violinist and composer. One of the most famous violin masters of his or any other day, he was known for his sweet tone and expressive phrasing. Like many great violinists of his generation, he produced a characteristic sound which was immediately recognizable as his own. Although he derived in many respects from the Franco-Belgian school, his style is nonetheless reminiscent of the gemütlich lifestyle of pre-war Vienna.
