The Kreisler Highway

Get on the Kreisler Highway! 
Fritz Kreisler was Suzuki’s favorite violinist.  Kreisler was very good at playing near the bridge.  This is why we say “Stay on the Highway”!  The playing of Kreisler is a good example of the violin traditions of the Romantic Period.  Listen to these old recordings.  Compare the Kreisler performances with recordings made by more modern violinists.   What do you think of them?
