Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber is a name that all violinists, if not all musicians, should certainly know. It was principally his contributions to composition that familiarized violinists with higher positions, as well as multiple-stops and scordatura. These 8 Violin Sonatas were published in 1681, and among them are two that require scordatura, or alternate tunings.

This edition contains two different violin parts; one with those two sonatas written out in the alternate tuning, and one in which the part is altered to fit into the normal G-D-A-E tuning. It also contains facsimiles from the original edition, including the title page, an introduction from the composer (in Latin), and a page of music. There is a separate piano part. Published by Kalmus.

Difficulty: A4/A5

NOTE:  The cover reads "8 Violin Sonatas, Volume 1," but in actuality, it is simply Volume 1 of a collection of 24 Sonatas - rest assured, there are actually eight sonatas in this book!
