L Mozart Versuch einer gründlichen Violinschule (Facsimile, paperback)
Often plagiarized, but never achieved: Mozart's book is still today the basic writing on violin playing in the 18th century.
Leopold Mozart's Violin School is the first comprehensive German-language textbook that deals with the principles of violin playing and teaches them to teachers and students in a systematic form. In addition, it is also a general book on musical thinking and performance practice in the 18th century. The impact of the writing, which founded a genre of "violin school" in Germany in the first place, reaches far beyond its century. For violin pupils and students, for adherents of historical performance practice and for musicologists, the book is an inexhaustible source.
