Complete Cello Technique

The Classic Treatise on Cello Theory and Practice

By Diran Alexanian. With a preface by Pablo Casals and an introduction by David Geber.

An unabridged republication of Diran Alexanian's 1922 classic, Traite theoretique et pratique du Violoncelle--considered one of the most thorough explorations of cello playing and technique in the literature. Reprinted from the original dual-language edition (French and English instruction side-by-side on the page), with numerous photographs, diagrams, and music examples, it is a superb compendium of instruction for student and growing professional alike.

Alexanian (who played chamber music with Brahms, performed concertos with Mahler, taught alongside Casals in Paris, and saw his influential ideas shape the careers of such cellists as the legendary Gregor Piatigorsky) received the highest praise from Casals in his preface: " . . . [in] the only work of its kind . . . even experienced virtuosos will find . . . food for instructive meditation."

Unabridged republication of the work originally published by A. Zunz Mathot, Paris, 1922.
