New fingering techniques for violinists
These exercises are intended for violinists who have a basic knowledge of shifting positions and how to play double stops.
At first fixed positions and shifting are practised separately from one another in one and two part combinations.
In the second volume these two techniques are combined and consolidated.
The aim of these studies or études is to improve fingering techniques, enabling the student to execute shifting positions with greater confidence. Gola’s Violin Technique should be used for study purposes by musicians on a continuous basis.
- New methods to practise and improve shifting positions
- With brief descriptions in three languages (Cz/Ger/Eng)
- Advanced level of difficulty
Zdenek Gola (*1929) studied at the Brünner Janácek Academy and was subsequently Professor of Violin at the Music Conservatory in Ostrava. In 1966 he emigrated to Sweden, where he made a name for himself as orchestral musician, concert master and soloist as well as pedagogue. He is the author of numerous educational works.
