Book Description

This encyclopedia is the diverse lexicographic work available in the English language and provides a treasure trove of information on the violin--its technique, its history, and its place in music. Beginning with the 1880's, the work traces the evolution of violin technique, examines its construction and manufacture, lists makers in America and Europe, offers a biographical section on chamber music ensembles with rare photographs, and presents a glossary of music and musical terms. This Da Capo paperback features a new preface by noted concert violinist, Stuart Canin. This standard handbook for professional musicians and students will interest all those with a love for music.

Author Biography - Alberto Bachmann

Swiss-born Alberto Bachmann was a concert violinist and composer whose enthusiasm for the instrument compelled him to write about it. He wrote Le Violon in 1906, Les Grands Violinistes du Passe in 1913, Gymnastique a l'Usage des Violinistes in 1914, and culminated his work as a writer in 1925 with the publication of this encyclopedia.
