Otakar Sevcik's single-volume Forty Variations for the Violin occupies a special position in his extensive oeuvre of teaching material. Here he follows up on his systematic step by step work for the right hand, which he covered in detail in his previous op. 2.
Nonetheless, this volume can be used as a self-contained unit, enlivening the violinists daily regimen and offering a concise and highly effective method for mastering the right hand, from elementary exercises to virtuoso technique.
The editor, Pavel Kudelásek, is a teacher at the Prague Conservatory.
