Technique Flies High! is an exciting book of new performance studies for the intermediate to advanced violinist. Using baroque, romantic, contemporary and folk styles, these solo studies are also ideal as unaccompanied concert repertoire.
Practice and performance tips guide the student and outline the technical and musical goals. Techniques covered include: advanced position changing, fast passage work and string crossings, natural and artificial harmonics, slow bowing and playing many notes in one bow, working in unusual or changing time signatures, free improvisation within strict boundaries, double stopping, and rapid changes between arco and pizzicato.
