Based on the book by Prof. Michael Frischenschlager, 'Classical Violin Technique' is a 20 episode film series demonstrating select fundamentals of violin playing. It will be released June 2021 on YouTube, accessible to all and free of charge. Performed by young virtuosos, the episodes explain select aspects in violin technique through carefully chosen demonstrations, musical examples, etudes and helpful teaching tips.
