Rode 24 Caprices for Violin

A pupil of G.B. Viotti and later a soloist at the court of Napoleon, French violinist-composer Pierre Rode made several lasting contributions to violin pedagogy and repertoire.  These 24 Caprices, aimed at encouraging the player’s facility over the whole instrument, are still studied today; several contemporary violinists have even recorded them. Rode also composed a number of violin concertos inspired by those of Viotti, but only a few are still performed with any frequency. This International edition is edited by Ivan Galamian.
