Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This concise volume by an expert in the field is not only a practical manual for the performer, it also deals authoritatively with the history of the instrument, stressing basic facts and describing techniques of music making. In covering the essentials of performance practice and musical style for the classical repertoire, the text provides important suggestions for mastering basic touch, fingering, articulation and phrasing, rhythm and tempo, ornaments such as the trill, slide, turn and arpeggio; ensemble playing, and other fundamentals. According to Music and Letters, the author "has compressed a great deal of useful information into a comparatively short space yet has managed to keep the text readable." With its sound advice and abundant information, this volume is sure to appeal to a wide range of students, teachers, and music lovers.
