Mantel: Practising Etudes
- The Basics of Cello Technique -
Gerhard Mantel's new edition 'Etüden üben' [Practising studies] (3 volumes) complements his previous successful book 'Cello üben' (ED 8714).
The basics of cello technique are worked on in selected studies, with the focus being not only on the ability to learn a technically and musically oriented text within a reasonable time but also on the solution of certain problems typical of the cello.
This volume deals with fingerings, whole-bow stroke, dynamics, articulation and types of bowing, among others. The accompanying volume of commentaries (for all three volumes) describes in detail the methodological practising processes.
