Exercises for the Viola in Various Combinations of Double-Stops
Written by world renown pedagogue, Roland Vamos, this collection of
double-stop exercises fill a void in the literature of technical
exercises for violists. These etudes feature a systematic series of
fixed double-stops that enables the player to practice and master every
possible combination of finger patterns across two strings without
shifting. Mr. Vamos says of the book, The most important accomplishment
is the development of a strong left hand... These exercises, when
practiced slowly and carefully, will help to develop a keen sense of
pitch and intonation. Includes a DVD with performance examples.
