The great musician — violinist, teacher and composer — Veniamin Sher belongs to the most brilliant disciples of Leopold Auer’s school.
Sher’s heritage as a composer3 is diverse and ample; however, the special place is given to the 24 Virtuoso Etudes for Violin, the true model of their author’s performing and pedagogical skill, manifesting the development of the featured etude genre.
Sher follows the tradition of N. Paganini’s Capriccios and H. Venyavsky’s Etudes, instilling original aesthetic and diverse technical methods to his pearls. Fruitful imaginative sphere gives birth to facture and structure discoveries, thus revealing Sher’s nature. Although being nourished with all possible technical capers, Sher’s etudes strike first of all by their touching inner dramaturgic ground, so much appreciated by the musicians.
