Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962) was an Austrian-born violinist and composer; one of the most famous violinists of his day, his
playing was noted for its sweet tone and expressive phrasing. He died in 1962 and was interred in Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, NY. Kreisler wrote a
number of pieces for the violin, including solos for encores. Tambourin
Chinois, was composed during the first decade of the twentieth century, about the time Kreisler was making his first big splash as an international violinist.
The three-sectioned work offers opportunities for both technical fireworks
and sentimental morsels. Judy Kang
