The violist Barbara Maurer communicates her experience of many years as a leading performer of advanced contemporary music: The second half of the 20th century was a very prolific time in which a rich palette of new sound phenomena arose. Particularly inventive music is mostly found wherever a composer does not let himself be disturbed by what the performer considers possible. Everything that is possible with strings, wood and 150 horsehairs will amaze string players, composers and listeners. In four fundamental chapters, she goes even further and imparts basic knowledge for all musicians who want to work not only on contemporary music, but also on the very newest ensemble works.
“I particularly like the dynamics chart as it shows the author has an excellent grasp of stringed instrument limits. Aimed for the composer, if offers practical assistance to the performer as well. The charts and illustrations are easy to understand. In German only…”
