BEST ORIGINAL VIOLA ETUDES, part 4: Etude No. 16, Allegro Molto from Methode D'Alto by J. Martinn

This excellent etude can be used for work on bowing combinations, coordination between the fingers of the left hand and the bow, string crossings, intonation, velocity, bow strokes, techniques of holding foundation fingers down for several notes, advance preparation of fingers, and many other technical goals including practice in various positions.
Because of its directness and lack of variety of techniques, this etude lends itself to many efficient technical goals and drills, depending on what one needs to improve.
I am introducing the etude, performing it, and explaining some things that can be drilled while working on this piece.
The piece can be found on IMSLP by following this link:
