He transcribed a number of his pieces for his brother, cellist Hugo Kreisler, and recorded a few of them with Fritz Kreisler as a piano accompanist. Paul Olefsky has performed/recorded/broadcast many of these gems for over sixty years internationally. Intention of this recording is to glimpse the violinist humanity of Kreisler's while setting forth the cello's voice character in the extended tessitura range. The chosen pieces demonstrate Kreisler's international styles-baroque, French, Spanish, Italian, Viennese; Irish; Chinese; Russian; etc. Many cultures are represented.
