Hi, thank you very much for these! Fritz Kreisler has always been one of my favorites and I love his peices too... Thanks for putting a list of these works. I'll certainly look at those I do not know on the net.

Thanks, Bram. Kreisler's little showpieces are great for student solos because they combine originality, charm and variety of technique, don't you think? Suzuki, a great fan of Fritz Kreisler, would often assign one of them to us teachers to play at a Monday concert.

Cheers, John Berger
