An old style method book that is used today as an advanced etude book. In the old method tradition, the book opens with rudiments of music and basic playing techniques. It then advances rapidly to intermediate level scalar and duet style etudes. The centerpiece of the book, and the reason it is popular today, is the 31 Brilliant Etudes, as well as the Six Grand Etudes, and Six Concert Duets. These are followed by solo parts to five pieces (piano parts not included), and a section on advanced scalar playing. 124 pages.
