Exercises for the Viola in Various Combinations of Double-Stops

With Foreword by Rachel Barton Pine

Roland Vamos (composer)


  • Viola
Methods and Studies; Book with CD or DVD
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.
