Sonata for solo violin No 4 in E minor, Op 27 No 4

à Fritz Kreisler

The fourth sonata is dedicated to Fritz Kreisler. The Sarabande is of great tenderness, based around four-note ostinato. The Finale is characteristic of Kreisler’s playing and of his short pieces like the Tambourin chinois. To thank Ysaÿe Kreisler wrote and dedicated his Recitative and scherzo caprice for violin solo ‘à la Ysaÿe’.

from notes by Philippe Graffin © 1997

La quatrième sonate est dédiée à l’ami d’Ysaÿe, Fritz Kreisler. La Sarabande est d’une grande tendresse, tout autour de quatre notes ostinato, et le Finale est caracteristique du jeu de Kreisler et de ses petites pièces comme son Tambourin chinois. À son tour, pour le remercier, Kreisler lui dédia son Recitatif et scherzo caprice pour violon seul écrit «à la Ysaÿe».

extrait des notes rédigées par Philippe Graffin © 1997

Die vierte Sonate ist Fritz Kreisler gewidmet. Die Sarabande ist sehr zärtlich, ganz um vier Noten „ostinato“ herum aufgebaut, und das Finale ist charakteristisch für Kreislers Musik und seine kleinen Stücke wie sein Tambourin chinois. Kreisler seinerseits widmet ihm als Dank sein Recitatif et scherzo caprice für Geige allein das er „à la Ysaÿe“ komponierte.
