The Techniques of ...
"The Techniques of..." offers performers a comprehensive overview of the wide range of techniques for their instrument or voice. The volumes, with text in both English and German, focus on advanced contemporary instrumental or vocal techniques. Featured in the manuals are practice tips, fingering charts and musical examples from standard repertoire pieces. The volumes will also be of value to teachers. Composers are presented with detailed information on important factors to take into consideration when using special instrumental techniques. Indispensible to composers are the musical examples, which demonstrate the various notation possibilities. CDs, internet-chapters accompanied by musical excerpts, CD-ROMs and foldout tables in the original size of the instrument complete this internationally successful series. The series will be continued.
Pierre Boulez: This new approach will allow the composer to “express himself in a richer and more contrasted manner”.

Brian Ferneyhough: “an essential tool in the hands of teachers and performers alike.”
