Synopsis: Never before available in English, this classic work is a major contribution to the art and technique of violin playing and an important document in the history of performance practice. A contemporary of Kreutzer and Rode, Pierre Marie Francois de Sales Baillot provides in his treatise many insights into the style of nineteenth-century fingering, bowing, ornamentation, and expressiveness that are not apparent from the directions and markings found in scores of that time. Such information will be invaluable for performers interested in understanding the intentions of composers such as Viotti, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn. This complete, unabridged translation, which includes an extensive introduction by the translator, Louise Goldberg, and a foreword by Zvi Zeitlin, will be indispensable for musicologists, performers, and lovers of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century classical music.

About the Author: Pierre Baillot (1771-1842) was a violinist, teacher, writer, and composer. Professor of violin at the Conservatoire National de Musique in Paris for forty-seven years, he toured widely in Europe and Russia; he was a member of Napoleon's chamber orchestra, first violinist in Louis XVIII's string quartet, and solo violinist of the orchestra of the Paris Opera. Louise Goldberg is Head of Rare Books and Special Collections at the Sibley Music Library of the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester. Zvi Zeitlin is Kilbourn Professor of Violin at the Eastman School of Music.
