The Violin in 5th's - Developing Intonation and Sound by Rodney Friend (Beares Publishing)
'Heifetz, Oistrakh, Stern, Menuhin, Milstein, Szeryng, Ricci, Rabin…Their innate talent and outstanding skills made violin mastery seem natural and easy. As a young man, British violinist, concertmaster and Royal Academy of Music professor Rodney Friend had the privilege to collaborate with many of the virtuosos. During these encounters he observed the simplicity of their practice patterns and a tendency towards effortless posture and natural hand freedom. These observations became the cornerstones of a teaching method that he has developed and perfected over the past decades.'
