Methodological notes by the editor (Cz/Eng/Ger)
The School of Bowing Technique Op.2 is the second important violin tutor by Otakar Ševčík (1852–1934) and deals with the elementary technical demands of the right hand. Divided into three sections, the tutor contains more than 4,000 systematically arranged bowing exercises in increasing order of difficulty.
This new edition of the School of Bowing Technique combines the original six volumes in groups of two. It is largely based on the first edition, published in the early 20th century, and on other sources from Ševčík’s estate. The editor, Jaroslav Foltýn, is a professor of violin at the Prague Conservatory, as was Ševčík himself.
