Published in early 1806, Kreutzer’s “40 Études ou Caprices” for violin – there are 42 today – are the product of his years-long employment at the Conservatoire de Paris and are the most comprehensive collection of studies from his quill. Their systematic and complete reappraisal of essential violin technique make them an indispensable tool of the trade for every serious student of the violin (conservatory level). In the intervening two centuries, numerous reprints by various publishers followed the Parisian first edition, frequently adapted by famous soloists and teachers. Just a few years after the first edition, Kreutzer published a complete revision of this standard work in which he exchanged or heavily altered etudes. This second version of the collection forms the basis for our Urtext edition, which nevertheless presents the variants from the early edition as well. The virtuoso and sought-after violin pedagogue Ingolf Turban acted as a consultant for this edition and furnished it with modern markings so that it provides an ideal foundation for contemporary violin instruction.

Each publication presents Henle features, which have become well known and
liked by musicians of all ages.

  • Slightly opaque paper for ease of reading/playing the musical text.
  • Extensive prefaces, which thus inform the discerning player about
    historical/musicological aspects of the composition.
  • Particular emphasis on ease of pages turns, thereby facilitating
    practical playing aspects.
  • Henle Urtext editions are not only noted for the scholarly accuracy of their text, but also for the clear appearance of the musical text as well as the excellent printing.
