But there quality is that you can form your technique allmost exclusively on them. I thinck I've seen some midi files with some of the etudes, you can find them on classical music archives.

If somebody recorded the basic version of each on CD and worked out a deal with Shar and Amazon it would be the biggest selling classical disc of all time. You could use posts around the web inquiring about the existence as a demonstration of the demand. Peter? Emil? Alena? Carla?

They were recorded somehow using a computer or synthesizer. It is for practice use.

I would have to root through my cd's to find it !

hey if you search the website you can find them they are in the practice section of violins I think... have fun and practice practice practice!!


July 1, 2005 at 03:17 AM · The Kreutzer etudes are available in a synthesizer version CD at: The website includes audio snippets of the etudes recorded at a slow tempo. Seems pretty interesting. Does anyone out there have this CD?

The playing is excellent. But it doesn't have the complete Kreutzer studies. And it's not free (but often shows up at a low price).

July 1, 2005 at 12:46 PM · There's a copy of the Staryk LP currently listed at:,steven/every+violinist's

for $10.

July 1, 2005 at 03:25 PM · Oh yes! there is a beautiful recording of all the Kreutzer Etudes by the Italian violinist FELICE CUSANO, it was a cassette but possibly also a CD.

Look into the web.

Felice Cusano hold for years the Violin Chair at Conservatorio Verdi of Milan.
