This comprehensive view of the Violin and Viola by a professional violinist, teacher and author details the historical development and changing structure of these two instruments. The text covers the contributions of Stradivarius and the legendary Cremona school of makers, techniques and improvements advocated by such celebrated teachers and Geminiani, Tartini and Leopold Mozart; the great schools of players - from Corelli to Paganini; and the demands imposed by the growth of the nineteenth-century Orchestra.

Further chapters include information of teaching and acoustics, scientific properties of the vibrating string, the harmonic series, tone colour and intonation, and the volume contains musical examples, diagrams, illustrations and photographs.
