Cello, Bow and You

by Evangeline Benedetti

Written for the cellist looking for an approach that demystifies cello playing, Cello, Bow and You is an innovative text in the field of string pedagogy written by a 40+ year veteran of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and certified teacher of the Alexander Technique. Author Evangeline Benedetti has a unique voice and approach, and invites cellists of all levels to explore, make discoveries and organically internalize technique. Benedetti's approach compliments the work that students do with their teachers by encouraging them to be more aware of themselves and responsive to internal and external guidance.

Cello, Bow and You allows students and professionals access to Benedetti's vast performance and teaching experience. She has pioneered an approach to playing that is a synthesis of the cellist's musical thought, the knowledge of the dynamic properties of the instrument and bow, and the ability to move effectively according to the mechanics of the human body. The synergy of these elements leads to physically healthy playing and frees players to be musically expressive. Written in engaging, informal prose, the book is a must-read for cellists and cello teachers - beginning, intermediate, or professional.

(TEMAS DE DIRECCIÓN ORQUESTAL)

by Guillermo Scarabino

A textbook for students of Conducting. The result of integrating the knowledge learned from legendary teachers such as Laszlo Halasz, Igor Markevitch and Hans Svarowsky with reflections from Scarabino’s own conducting experience and a fruitful harvest of interchanges with his many students from different countries and cultural backgrounds.

The second part – available in Spanish only - analyses and discusses several pieces and/or movements extracted from a wide repertoire ranging from Mozart to Stravinsky and Schönberg. In this second part, the emphasis is laid on specific matters of interpretation and conducting technique.
