Sevcik for Cello - Opus 3: 40 Variations Reviews
The content itself is a very useful teaching tool when used with lessons (especially if your teacher is well-versed in these bow exercises).
This is a really useful book. My teacher has me create variations upon the variations--she calls it the 240 Variations Book.
Good. Thank you.
Even though this edition has a nice cover, the sheet music inside looks old and is much more tightly-packed than other editions. I also purchased the Changing the Positions Op. 8 by Otakar Sevcik (maroon cover), which has sheet music that is better spaced. The maroon edition, however, does have some typos and poor-quality printed finger suggestions. If I had to pick, I would choose the version with the maroon cover, not this one. I have not seen other editions, so they might be better.
A standard for the development of bow technique and intonation. However, it's in the public domain and can be downloaded from imslp (dot org) for free - though $10 isn't so much to pay. Also, the cello on the cover is backwards.
