Celebrated throughout Europe, this violinist gives impressive testament to his technique with his “24 Caprices en Forme d'Études” in all keys. To this day, the “Caprices” are a milestone in every violinist's education conservatory level. This Urtext edition offers detailed text regarding source material and historical annotations. Rode specialist and violinist Friedemann Eichhorn assisted with the preparation of this edition and contributed fingering and bowing suggestions ideal for contemporary violin instruction.
