Chanson sans paroles (Tschaikowski) - Violin Sheet Music

Edited: July 5, 2019, 1:57 AM · I'm looking online for the violin sheet music for this wonderful piece. There seems to be different versions of the sheet music.

Please see the video for the required version. Itzhak Perlman played this version as well.

Appreciate if anyone can point me to the correct sheet music. Thanks!

It would help if the OP provides the opus and piece number and also, if there is another version (as implied) detail that so that every person reading doesn't have to go through all the same background steps ;)

Piece #3 the Chant sans Paroles does appear to be the same piece as the "Chanson" in the youtube clip, although which if any of the 6 violin/piano arrangements it corresponds to I'm too lazy to find out
July 7, 2019, 12:02 AM · Thanks for the responses. I'm afraid the correct one still cannot be found based on the sources provided.

One of the obvious differences is that in the video, fingered harmonics were actually played towards the last few measures.

July 7, 2019, 1:54 PM · Perlman plays the Kreisler version which is available in The Fritz Kreisler Collection, Volume 2 (Carl Fischer)...but I think that version is a little different from the video you posted...
July 10, 2019, 1:46 AM · Thanks for highlighting that the version is by Kreisler. The search continues.
