The only English translation of this famous book.

Superior Bowing Technique is the definitive treatise on all aspects of bowing technique for the violin. Written by Lucien Capet, translated from French to English by Margaret Schmidt and edited by Stephen Shipps, the book is 187 pages in length.

Lucien Capet's concepts of bowing technique are completely revealed in this comprehensive volume. Along with the instructive text he has included exercises, studies and excerpts from the standard repertoire to clearly demonstrate the acquisition of Superior Bowing Technique. Spiral bound.

"To achieve the greatest possible variety in interpretation, it is essential to develop all the capabilities of the right hand, because the superior character of a violinistic Work of Art resides, not in the technique of the left hand, but in the Bow." - Lucien Capet
