CD Reviews

A Collection of Kreisler Muiscal Arrangements
Timothy Kearney | Hull, MA United States | 10/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Fritz Kreisler was well known in his day both as a composer and an arranger. This disc contains some of Kreisler's arrangements of music by Tchaikovksy, Dvorak, and Rimsky-Korsakov for violin and piano. Kreisler had the ability to capture the magic of these works and make them useful for his concert purposes as well. While the gifted playing of young violinist Nicolas Koeckert (he was twenty four at the time of the recording) may not be on the same level as Kreisler, at least judging from recordings available of Kreisler himself, we do get a glimpse of Kreisler's appreciation for the music of these great composers as well as his ability to please an audience. Pianist Milana Chernyavska accompanies Koeckert and the two perform well together.

This is one of those relaxing discs that will be perfect for listening to while at work, relaxing after a long day, or putting on in the car so that obnoxious drivers and traffic jams will not get the best of us. It will also transport the listener back to a time of composer/arrangers who were also great performers, something we do not see in classical music all that often.
