Otakar Sevcik - Shifting the Position and Preparatory Scale Studies, Op. 8
Schirmer Library of Classics Volume 848
Composer: Otakar Sevcik
For unaccompanied violin.
Drills in all positions & on all strings to methodically reinforce knowledge and ability in performing in all positions. The scales in the back of the book also reinforce the positions. Practicing them will provide a partial basis or preparation for performing musical passages that incorporate scales.
The editor, Mitell says, "...The chief difficulty in these exercises consists in shifting (changing the position) so smoothly that it is hardly perceptible..."
Instructions are included that describe how the exercises should be practiced.
