Viola Time Sprinters is the third book in this hugely successful series, building on the firm technical and stylistic foundations of Joggers and Runners. You'll find pieces in first, second, and third position, as well as a range of bowing techniques, including spiccato, hooked bowing, and string crossing. The book includes original pieces in different styles, pieces by a range of composers, and duets with parts of equal difficulty, together with a CD of performances and backings. Straightforward piano accompaniments are available in a separate volume.
