By Hill A & H
Хорошо иллюстрированная и переизданная (первое издание было в 1902 г.) биография Антонио Страдивари. Для книги характерно внимание к деталям как жизни так и творчества великого мастера. Подробно описывается техническая сторона (насколько она стала известна авторам) изготовления его инструментов. Книга хорошо написана и интересно читается.
Доп. информация: Хотя качество среднее но тем не менее книга вполне читаемая как с экрана так и после распечатки (кому что больше нравится). Эта книга на английском языке.

Some 'champions' are egotistical, selfish, and so concentrated on what they wish to accomplish that everything else is forgotten. DALTON Is that part of our art, part of being a musician, that compels one to be egocentric and ruthless? PRIMROSE I would say not. But it happens, and it happens ironically because of a feeling of insecurity, I believe. DALTON Does the teacher of viola have an obligation to instruct a student in theory, form, history, and cognate subjects as an aid to improve his musicianship?
DALTON Being a methodical person, do you have any particular daily practice routine that you subscribe to personally, and do you recommend this for your students? For instance, do you begin with a certain type of work and conclude with another? PRIMROSE Nothing beyond beginning with Kreutzer No. 9, which I have used especially in recent years. No. 2,3 in Sevcik's Preparatory Trill Studies op. 7 is also excellent, played a fifth down, of course (Ex. 7). We know that we have to keep our fingers in good condition just as an athlete keeps his muscles finely toned.
Why duplicate and waste time? 16 Teacher and Student DALTON Do you find yourself repeating particular exercises with most of your students? PRIMROSE Yes, because I find there are some universal weaknesses in viola playing: the vibrato, the mobile hand, bow division, and string crossing particularly. Yet I am intolerant of the situation where a person goes to a doctor and says that he is not feeling well and the doctor prescribes a set number of aspirins a day whether the person has a headache, broken leg, cancer, glaucoma, or what have you.
