DMA Lecture Recital: Violin Performance Influences of Fritz Kreisler


Nov. 17, 2022, 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Office/Remote Location

Dr. Arturo Rando-Grillot Recital Hall


This lecture will discuss elements contained or implied in the question of what the modern performer of violin literature can learn and apply from the life, creative output, and career of Fritz Kreisler, a successful performer and composer of a past era. It is now the twenty-first century, and Fritz Kreisler, who lived from the final quarter of the nineteenth century beyond the first half of the twentieth century, continues as a name widely recognized and associated with excellence in violin performance. His name is legendary among violinists, and he left a lasting legacy in the compositions that he created for us to gain professional enlightenment, inspiration, and motivation.

Kreisler's output exists in four categories: Original Works, Works in the Style of, Transcriptions, and Cadenzas. The lecture will include a discussion of these, and examples will be performed from each category as appropriate. Presenter and performer Walter White, violin, will be joined by pianist Gaye Nelson. Mr. White is a student of UNLV School of Music Professors Ambroise Aubrun and Weiwei Le.
