The Violin and Viola: History, Structure, Techniques Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[The book] should appeal greatly to the string performer, student or teacher, and to the enthusiast of music history." — Choice. "Nelson's book should be read by every player and teacher of violin and viola . . . Her chapter 'Education for Survival' must be singled out for special praise, for it provides a short but comprehensive discussion of the manner in which string teaching ought to proceed but all too seldom does." — Library Journal. Comprehensive view of the violin and viola by a professional violinist, teacher, and author details the historical development and changing structure of the two instruments. Text covers the contributions of Stradivarius and the legendary Cremona school of makers; techniques and improvements advocated by such celebrated teachers as Geminiani, Tartini, and Leopold Mozart; the great schools of players — from Corelli to Paganini; and the demands imposed by the growth of the 19th-century orchestra. Includes music examples and 11 diagrams. 24 halftones.

Book News Annotation:

Professional violinist and teacher Nelson presents an overview of the historical development and changing structure of the violin and the viola.

The volume (originally published in London in 1972 by Ernest Benn, Limited) features a new introduction by the author. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
