An Encyclopedia of the Violin

Description

“No list of twentieth-century landmarks in music reference would be valid without Bachmann’s Encyclopedia.”—American Reference Book Annual
“If there were such an award as one for the best reprint of our day, surely this book by Alberto Bachmann would be way up front with the leaders.”—American String Teacher
Of the many books written about the violin, none offers the breadth and scope of this renowned reference. First published in 1925, it remains unsurpassed as a source of essential information on all aspects of the instrument. It traces the evolution of technique from the 1800s onward, in addition to examining the violin’s construction and manufacture, listing American and European makers, and offering a biographic section on chamber music ensembles.
Seventy-three rare photographs complement the text, which features an introduction by the legendary violinist Eugène Ysaÿe and a glossary of music and musical terms. Written by a concert violinist and composer, this remarkable handbook is a must for professionals, amateurs, teachers, and students.
