Praeludium and Allegro
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Praeludium and Allegro (Classical Manuscript No 5, attributed to Gaetano Pugnani) is Kreisler’s finest achievement. The Prelude is memorable, the Allegro marvellously virtuosic. When playing it at the Paris Opéra in 1923, Kreisler saw Vincent d’Indy wag a finger at him from the front row and thought he had been found out. Afterwards d’Indy told him: ‘Pugnani would not have played the Allegro in that tempo.’ Sadly Kreisler never recorded it.
