Essay On The Craft Of Cello Playing Volume 2

Instrumental Tutor | Tuition
Composer Christopher Bunting
Publisher S J Music

This widely admired work gives Bunting's insights about Cello playing in a commentary interspersed with exercises designed to produce rapid development of instrumental skill. Volume 2 is devoted to the action, placing and movement of the left hand. It proposes new ways of patterning the various positions and movements and uses ideas of finger-action first proposed by Casals.

Volume 1 starts with a 'Prelude', a searching enquiry into the mental and physical factors affecting the skilful functioning and development of technique. There follows a section of commentary and exercises to build a skilful and artistic bowing technique. The next section, on the various aspects of coordination, draws upon ideas described in the Prelude, and clarifies central problems not often resolved.

'I was amazed at how much useful information Christopher Bunting manages to fit into this book. His mind is as thoroughly analytical as any I have ever come across ... answers to a vast range of technical questions ... eminently readable ... essential reading for teachers and mature students. ... a wonderfully useful reference book.' Stephen Isserlis
