About This Item

"Violist Lillian Fuchs was one of the most gifted performers and composers for Viola in the world until her death in 1995. She was born into a musically gifted family whose descendants have continued to pursue musical careers. She was an active pedagogue as well as performer, teaching at the Aspen Music Festival as well as holding teaching positions at the Julliard School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. Her teaching style influenced some of the worlds foremost violists and viola pedagogues.

The Fifteen Characteristic Studies are progressive works which serve a dual purpose: they contain educational technical emphasis while still acting as performance material. The Studies focus on bowings, string crossings, approaching chords, clef reading, and rhythmic dexterity without neglecting the importance of musicianship. These studies are personal favorite of mine because they provide an excellent alternative to tedious technical etudes."

- Mark Johnson, Violist & Shar Apprentice
