"The Kreisler of the Saxophone"
Recorded in New York City in 1926 featuring Rudy Wiedoeft alto sax, with Unknown piano accompaniment.
*"Valse Vanite" is credited to Rudolph Wiedoeft.
Rudy Wiedoeft played a tremendous part in popularizing the saxophone as both a performer and composer, so much so, that he was dubbed "The Kreisler of the Saxophone" as a flattering reference to master violinist Fritz Kreisler. Born in Vienna, Austria on February 2nd 1875, Friedrich "Fritz" Kreisler was a violinist and composer. Envied by other musicians for his expressive phrasing and remarkably sweet tone Kreisler was often regarded as the greatest violinist of all time for his overall mastery of the instrument.
