The first of its kind, the book is an encyclopaedia on the different techniques in violin playing. As its title suggests, it deals with the different violin playing techniques in both the systems-the Western and the South Indian Classical Music. There are many books which study the different techniques of violin playing in western music where as in the South Indian system there is no comprehensive identification and enumeration of the various techniques in use. The book explores and outlines the various techniques in the South Indian system. Different violin playing styles in both the systems are methodically analysed and a lucid comparison of the techniques in both the systems are the main crux of this majestic work. Views of legendary musicians and violinists are also included.
