Recitativo and Scherzo, Op 6
The Recitativo and Scherzo for solo violin, published in 1911 as Op 6, bears the dedication ‘À Eugène Ysaÿe, le maître et l’ami’. The Recitativo demands the parlando bowing that was a persuasive part of Kreisler’s armoury, while the Scherzo calls for considerable virtuosity. A dozen years later Ysaÿe returned the compliment by dedicating the fourth of his solo sonatas to Kreisler.
