Tambourin chinois, Op 3

Original Composition No 3

Tambourin chinois (Original Composition No 3), originated long before Kreisler visited China. ‘I enjoyed very much writing my Tambourin chinois’, he said. ‘The idea for it came to me after a visit to the Chinese theatre in San Francisco—not that the music there suggested any theme, but it gave me the impulse to write a free fantasy in the Chinese manner.’

Kreisler composa son Tambourin chinois (Composition originale nº 3) bien avant de visiter la Chine. «J’ai adoré écrire mon Tambourin chinois», déclara-t-il. «L’idée m’en est venue après être allé au théâtre chinois de San Francisco—non pas que la musique présentée là m’ait suggéré un quelconque thème, mais cela m’incita à écrire une fantaisie libre, à la manière chinoise.»

Tambourin chinois (Originalkomposition Nr. 3) ist lange vor Kreislers Chinareise entstanden. „Es hat mir viel Freude gemacht, Tambourin chinois zu schreiben“, meinte er. „Ich hatte die Idee dazu nach einem Besuch des Chinese Theatre in San Francisco—es war nicht so, dass mich die Musik dort zu einem Thema angeregt hätte; sie inspirierte mich aber zu einer freien Fantasie im chinesischen Stil.“
