New edition of a tutor that generations of violinists have grown up with.
Fundamental work by a leading Violin educator.
Three volumes in increasing order of difficulty: easy – moderate – difficult
Methodological notes by the editor (Cz/Eng/Ger)
The School of Bowing Technique Op.2 is the second important Violin tutor by Otakar Ševcík (1852–1934) and deals with the elementary technical demands of the right hand. Divided into three sections, the tutor contains more than 4,000 systematically arranged bowing exercises in increasing order of difficulty.
This new edition of the School of Bowing Technique combines the original six volumes in groups of two. It is largely based on the first edition, published in the early 20th century, and on other sources from Ševcík’s estate. The editor, Jaroslav Foltýn, is a professor of violin at the Prague Conservatory, as was Ševcík himself.
