In The Best of Technique you'll discover the top playing tips of the world's leading string players and teachers. It's packed full of exercises for students, plus examples from the standard repertoire to show you how to integrate the technique into your playing.
Steven Isserlis, Ralph Kirshbaum, Mischa Maisky and Natalia Gutman are among the cellists featured in this special publication from The Strad. It also includes a selection of historic articles from the magazine’s archives on Pierre Fournier, Daniil Shafran, Pablo Casals, Emanuel Feuermann, Jacqueline du Pré, Gregor Piatigorsky and others.
Steven Sensbach has compiled a treasure trove for cellists and anyone interested in French cultural life. Setting the works in their cultural and historial context, he unearths many forgotten gems – 37 of the more than 130 sonatas discussed are unpublished – while shedding new light on repertoire works. Scholarly yet practical, Sensbach uses his knowledge as a cellist to offer performance tips and give his own recommendations.
