[book is flawless, with no discernible wear; jacket has a couple of tiny, near-invisible closed edge tears]. (B&W photographs, musical examples) An instructional book dedicated to the proposition that violin playing should be "a joyous undertaking," and that as a "total body experience [it] requires the harmonious interplay of the mind, body, and violin. Through the use of ingenious gymnastic exercise Mr. Fracht demonstrates how anyone with talent and drive can become a master violinist." Approximately the second half of the book is devoted to the presentation of twelve masterpiece concerti (including works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn), which "through the use of illustrations, exercises and understanding he offers methods to conquer the most difficult passages of each piece."
