Technique Takes Off! for Viola
Fourteen original, imaginative studies for solo viola, specially written with the timbre and register of the instrument in mind. Each piece concentrates on one or two aspects of technique, and the whole set covers a wide range of left and right hand skills, including spicatto bowing, string-crossing, moto perpetuo, cantible, and easy double stops.
