Jacques Fereol Mazas (1782-1849) was a French composer, conductor, violinist, and pedagogue who is best remembered for a set of 75 Etudes melodiques et progressives, op. 36 published in three parts: Etudes speciales, Etudes brillantes, and Etudes d-artistes. Viola pedagogue and orchestral musician, Lawrence Wheeler, has meticulously edited a select 33 etudes from Book One (1-30) and Book Two (31-56), chosen for their musical and developmental benefit. The etudes selected are all appropriate audition repertoire. Fingerings have been adapted for the viola and clef changes reflect modern practice. Each etude shows alternate fingerings in parentheses and suggests alternate bowings. A welcome new addition to the teaching repertoire for Viola.
Jacques Fereol Mazas (1782-1849) was a French composer, conductor, violinist, and pedagogue. He is best remembered for a set of 75 Etudes melodiques et progressives, Op. 36, consisting of three parts: Etudes speciales, Etudes brillantes and Etudes d-artistes. This book is a selection of 33 etudes from Book One (Nos. 130) and Book Two (Nos. 3156). The etudes included here are those that are most applicable for study by the modern violist. Those etudes not selected are technical exercises of limited musical variety. The study and teaching of these etudes should prove invaluable for developing and maintaining technical skills and musicianship. They may be studied in any order, according to the needs of the player. Any would be excellent choices for region and state auditions. This edition is based on the original edition for violin. Great care has been given to ensure the accuracy of notes, rhythms and dynamics. Clef changes reflect modern practice and fingerings use all the positions. Each etude will show alternate fingerings in parentheses and may also suggest alternate bowings. These do not alter the intent or goal of the etudes, but may work better for the individual student or performer. Metronome markings are goals, with initial practice beginning much slower.
