Play the Viol: The Complete Guide to Playing th Treble, Tenor, and Bass Viol

£49.99

Product description

The viol has become increasingly popular in recent years as an instrument for the amateur with an interest in early music. With this rise in popularity has grown the need for a tutor which gives detailed advice on playing technique and which is aware of the specific requirements of the adult beginner.Play the Viol, written to meet exactly this need, is the first comprehensive guide to appear in modern times and covers the treble, tenor, and bass viol. Its detailed technical instruction is based on original sources and on Alison Crum's extensive experience of performing and teaching. The book assumes no knowledge beyond an ability to read music, but aims to help players to reach an advanced standard, even without regular access to a teacher. Each point is fully illustrated withphotographs, diagrams, and carefully graded musical exercises. The book surveys the viol repertoire, discussing the many different styles of music. It highlights problems likely to be encountered and shows how they can be overcome. Advice is given on practising, improvising, consort-playing, and performing. Aunique feature of the book is the inclusion of practical information on choosing and caring for viols and bows, and a wide-ranging list of published music for viol.
