Itzhak Perlman plays Kreisler

Perlman is certainly one of the better violinists of our time, and this, while a very well-known piece, is one of the better chamber pieces written by the late 19th, early 20th-century master Fritz Kreisler. Perlman wrenches the right amount of feeling from this incredibly technical piece, though his rather determined playing style helps with that. If you're someone who prefers a chamber work played smoothly, check out Joshua Bell's version.
