Kreisler for Solo Piano

Eight Pieces by Fritz Kreisler

Transcribed for Solo Piano

Fritz Kreisler (composer)


  • Piano


To the modern listener, Fritz Kreisler evokes the elegance, romance, and old world charm of the Viennese ballroom, with sweeping cantabile melodies and bubbly arpeggiated passages that delight audiences and players alike. Violinists are already aware of Kreisler’s rich, romantic, and crowd-pleasing repertoire for the violin, but he was a prolific composer and transcriber for piano as well.

Pianists will love to play the sweepingly romantic and melancholy melodies of Liebesleid (Love's Sorrow), just as equally as they will enjoy the effervescent and dramatic Liebesfreud (Love's Joy), transcribed expertly by Rachmaninoff, and so many more lush and romantic stunners!
