Rachel Barton Pine/Wohlfahrt Etudes giveaway this week on

November 2, 2011 at 8:12 PM

It's out! Violinist Rachel Barton Pine's Foundation Studies for the Violin, Volume 1 - 60 First Position Studies (from Opp. 45, 54, 74) by Franz Wohlfahrt -- which comes with a DVD of her playing -- is officially now available.

She has been kind enough to give three copies to give to you, thus this week's giveaway contest. The first book went to Ashley Smith of Garrett, Indiana, (congratulations!) but you still have two more chances to win. The new question has been posted on the contest page, so go enter! The final question will go up on Friday.

The Wohlfahrt etudes were last edited about a century ago, and Rachel has brought them into the 21st century with new fingerings and bowings, and for the first time, some suggested dynamics so that students can do musical justice to these clever little studies. The book comes with a DVD of her playing the etudes.
