Details about Hofmann : First Studies for Violin, Op. 25 |  Associated sheet music


Richard Hofmann composed these Studies Opus 25 for the violin, and a transcription for the viola is also available.

These Studies Opus 25 by Hofmann are an excellent teaching resource for the early grades of violin and viola learning.

Together with the etudes of Wohlfahrt, Dancla and Mazas, they provide excellent preparatory material for the more challenging studies by Kayser and Kreutzer.

General technical remarks for Opus 25 :

  • Studies written in détaché bowing (such as nos. 4 and 6) should be practiced also with a great variety of bowing patterns in the aim of developing bowing technique
  • The left hand should be kept thoroughly relaxed, with the fingers very close to the fingerboard. In particular, the fourth finger should always remain above the strings
  • The first finger acts as an anchor for the entire left hand, and should thus be left on the strings as much as possible
  • The use of open strings is to be encouraged for beginners, as they provide an excellent reference for intonation and have a pleasant and pure resonance
