Editorial Reviews


'A pleasure to navigate.' Early Music

Book Description

This handbook provides an historical account of the development of the violin, viola and their close relatives as well as a practical guide to playing techniques and principles of interpretation. It aims to help performers to play in an historically appropriate style and to guide listeners towards a clearer understanding of the issues which affected string performance during the series' core period (c.1700-c.1900). Its six detailed case studies which include Bach and Beethoven will assist readers in forging well-grounded, period interpretations of major works from the repertory.
