    Left you all speechless, I see ;-) Well, it is quite long, but I found it interesting in many ways. My comment on YT:

    Excellent video, Ralf. I did not know about the various editions. The info on strings and plectra was enlightening. And the introduction to tremolo was really interesting, in that I could see your Roman plectrum moving with each stroke - that was really interesting and important to see. It was also great to hear study no.9 as a duet. In my edition (Cranz 1956) it is no.6. But this is why it is best to use this method with a teacher, as almost every piece is a duet, and the counterpoint is very Bach-like at times, and suddenly a C Major scale exercise sounds like real music! I'm delighted that you are making these new videos. Very much appreciated.

    Hi Rob,

    I watched it and enjoyed it just out of general interest, but it is mainly for the bowlback classical player.

    Regards,

    Well, yes, of course. Nothing wrong with a bit of specialisation.

    A thoughtful and scholarly presentation, capped off with some beautiful artful playing. Going to look into Ranieri--did not see the IMSLP link, maybe on youtube outside Cafe site? People interested in method books should also check out the thread on the Watters books.

    CORRECTION:
    ... just found and ordered the Ranieri book from Schott; many thanks for the information and the demonstration.

    Books 1 and 2 are still in print and available via different sources.

    Thank you for posting this Rob. What a treat to have Mr. Leenen explain and demonstrate this approach. And how kind of him to make the time and effort. I will keep a lookout for his next video. If you see it, please post!!!

    Sure, but you could simply subscribe to his YouTube account. Ralf used to be a member here, alas not currently.
