9780486466187: An Encyclopedia of the Violin (Dover Books on Music)

"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.

About the Author:

Swiss-born Alberto Bachmann was a concert violinist and composer whose enthusiasm for the instrument compelled him to write about it. He wrote Le Violon in 1906, Les Grands Violinistes du Passé in 1913, Gymnastique à l'Usage des Violinistes in 1914, and culminated his work as a writer in 1925 with the publication of this encyclopedia.
