Accompanied by the English-Italian conductor and pianist Antonio Pappano on piano, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen performs Liebesleid (English: Love’s Sorrow), one of the three pieces of Alt-Wiener Tanzweisen (Old Viennese Melodies in German) composed by the Austrian-born American violinist and composer Fritz Kreisler (February 2, 1875 – January 29, 1962).
It is not known when the three pieces (Liebesfreud [Love’s Joy], Liebesleid [Love’s Sorrow], and Schön Rosmarin [Lovely Rosemary]) are written, but they were published in 1905.
Kreisler often played these pieces as encores at his concerts, though the pieces are usually performed separately.
Friedrich “Fritz” Kreisler (February 2, 1875 – January 29, 1962) was an Austrian-born American violinist and composer. One of the most noted violin masters of his day, and regarded as one of the greatest violinists of all time, he was known for his sweet tone and expressive phrasing.
