Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unabridged republication of the 1922 classic, Traité théorique et pratique du Violoncelle, this volume represents one of the most thorough explorations of cello playing and technique in the literature. In the course of his distinguished career, author Diran Alexanian played chamber music with Brahms, performed concertos with Mahler, and taught alongside Casals in Paris. A superb compendium of instruction, this reprint of the original dual-language edition features French and English instruction side by side on the page, complemented by numerous photographs, diagrams, and music examples.

Synopsis:

An unabridged republication of Diran Alexanian's 1922 classic, Traite theoretique et pratique du Violoncelle — considered one of the most thorough explorations of cello playing and technique in the literature. Reprinted from the original dual-language edition (French and English instruction side-by-side on the page), with numerous photographs, diagrams, and music examples, it is a superb compendium of instruction for student and growing professional alike. Alexanian — who played chamber music with Brahms, performed concertos with Mahler, taught alongside Casals in Paris, and saw his influential ideas shape the careers of such cellists as the legendary Gregor Piatigorsky — received the highest praise of Casals in his preface: ." . . [in] the only work of its kind . . . even experienced virtuosos will find . . . food for instructive meditation."
