Fritz Kreisler (1875–1962) would likely be satisfied with the reception of his works even today. He wrote several operettes, countless songs and even a string quartet, but never touted himself as an important composer; nevertheless, he made a huge contribution to the broadening of the violin repertoire with his transcriptions, arrangements, his part in performing them, and, last but not least, his own original works.
