Based on the critical edition by Albert Dunning with fingering and preparatory exercises by Enzo Porta. This is a major publication for violin. Part of Locatelli's monumental L'Arte del Violino, first published in 1733, these 24 capriccios document the rise of virtuoso playing in the 18th century. Dunning's beautiful edition has an extensive introduction; Porta's detailed playing explanations and preparatory exercises cover 78 pages.

“This edition of 24 capriccios with accompanying exercises is sure to groom a budding pupil's skills and technique for the challenging repertoire of the masters...The most noteworthy benefit of this edition is its restoration of the 24 capriccios of Locatelli's L'Arte del Violino to their original form in almost every respect. This edition is populated with clear and precise indicators for elements as diverse as bowing markings to left-hand technique and fingerings.”--Strings magazine.
