The development of playing techniques and stylistic transitions is traced regionally through a comparison of Italian, French, German, English, and East European performance traits. Through a close study of contemporary violoncello methods, music, early instruments, periodicals, diaries, letters, and pictures, Dr. Walden provides a cohesive overview which examines construction methods for instruments and bows, fingering and bowing techniques, special effects and ornamentation, accompanying skills, and the stylistic preferences of the most famous soloists of the time. Richly illustrated with over 300 music examples, plates, and figures, this book allows the reader to apply the information to his or her own manner of playing period music."@en ;
