The Strad March 2020 cover


We mark the centenary of American violist and pedagogue Karen Tuttle, whose innovative teaching methods helped a generation of players. Also explored are the pros and cons of making a full quartet of instruments, and the exciting new possibilities of tonewoods from the forests of China. There’s also a look at the vibrato techniques of cellist Pablo Casals, and an examination of the life and work of 19th-century violinist and author William C. Honeyman.
