The eleven books that make up this anthology are the most comprehensive collection ever published of this master’s works. It includes newly edited material as well as content that have not been in print for decades. This 290-page book features an insightful foreword to help string players understand the master’s approach as well as to give the reader a historical perspective. A must for the serious violin player!
