 Fritz Kreisler for improving articulation
Author: ruben 
Date:   2020-03-10 14:18

I've recently begun practicing Fritz Kreisler violin pieces as an excellent exercise in articulation; enunuciation. Kreisler uses a variety of détachés and contrasts it with legato lines. As for the importance of articulation: notice that opera and lieder singers have become harder and harder to understand. When they sing in French, Italian, English, they might as well be singing in Bulgarian. The Kreisler pieces are kitsch, but fun to play and quite hard to get really clean and expressive. If they're not clean,; they aren't expressive.

Interesting comment! Brings back to me Fritz Kreisler’s Shon Rosmarin, which I performed at Solo & Ensemble Festival as a senior in high school in 1965, on clarinet, of course! It is a beautiful solo to perform.

Dear Reed: thanks for your appreciation of my post! Kreisler's Liebesfreud and Liebesleid are published in a version for clarinet and piano by Schott. To play them very cleanly and respect all of the markings of nuances is really hard!
