Old Viennese Dance Tunes (Cello and Piano)
No. 2 Love's Sorrow
Series: String Solo
Composer: Fritz Kreisler
Editor: Mats Lidström
This treatment of the three-part collection, published in 1905, is based on Fritz Kreisler's original version and the later pianist transcriptions by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The harmonies, the chromatic developments, and the counterpoint of the pianoforte transcriptions are preserved; the original and transcription are combined into a virtuoso and effective solo piece. The three-triennial act typical of Vienna requires a certain, hardly noticeable freedom of tempo formation without metronomical compulsion.
