“Parisian violinist, <i>Georges Catherine</i> (1872-1958) compiles an exciting collection for the Violin repertoire. The first solo from <i>Vieuxtemp</i>'s <strong>Concerto No. 5</strong> is clearly printed with a helpful key of unusual techniques. <br> <br><i>Vieuxtemp</i> (1820-1881) was an Belgian composer and violinist. He composed a significant amount of string music, particularly for the Violin, which remain popular in the advanced violinist's repertoire. The Violin solo line of <strong>Concerto No. 5</strong> makes use of extended techniques, including harmonics, bow techniques, aritculations and hand positions. <i>Catherine</i>'s series, <strong>First Solos extracted from the Classic Concertos</strong> provides essential access to significant repertoire of the Violin, preparing advanced violinists for the major concertos.&rdquo.
