"It has been a great pleasure observing the transformation of Mr. Vamos’ exercise book into a very useful resource for cellists. Horacio Contreras meticulously edited and adapted these materials to develop an important study which can be used by beginners as well as advanced cellists. I wish to thank my friend and colleague for making such a valuable contribution to our pedagogic repertoire."
This collection of double-stop exercises fill a void in the literature of technical exercises for cellists. These etudes feature a systematic series of fixed double-stops that enables the player to practice and master every possible combination of finger patterns across two strings without shifting. Mr. Vamos says of the book, "The most important accomplishment is the development of a strong left hand. These exercises, when practiced slowly and carefully, will help to develop a keen sense of pitch and intonation."
