(July 2018)

A comprehensive annotated collection of 365 tunes edited by Alastair And William Hardie.

With an historical introduction; foreword by Yehudi Menuhin.

This, the most all-embracing collection of Scottish fiddle music undertaken in the 20th century, includes slow airs, marches, strathspeys, reels and rants, hornpipes, jigs and pastorals.

All the major composers are represented - the Gows, Marshall, Fraser and Skinner - and all the melodies are fully bowed for the instrument.

The introduction traces the history of the fiddle and the music through the centuries, and contains a section on the specialised bowing techniques which give Scottish fiddle music some of its unique qualities. Appendix notes.

The cover illustration of Niel Gow (1727-1807) violinist and composer, is reproduced from the [painting by Sir Henry Raeburn and used by permission of the National Galleries of Scotland.
