The Finger Combinations of the Preceding Study with Special Emphasis on, and Treatment of, 1–4 and 4–1
  • Robert Dolejší
Part of the Da Capo Press Music Reprint Series book series (DACAPO)


This exercise for developing strength and confidence in the fourth finger must be studied diligently in the designated positions and tonalities (see the First Study). The fourth finger should, at all times, be manipulated with energy and firmness. Following each four-note sequence, the inactive fingers are not to remain on the strings, as in preceding studies, but are actively raised.
