Fritz Kreisler, the Austrian violinist known not only for his virtuosity, but also for his composition skills penned his work, La Gitana, as an homage to Spanish folk music. Nevertheless, the composer's heritage can be felt in the piece. In moments, La Gitana breathes like a Viennese waltz. Kreisler is noted as one of the great masters of violin of his time. Gwendolyn showcases her own mastery in this piece, and along with the ensemble, holds this early-twentieth century work in good steed for contemporary listeners.
