The history from the Western European Violin Schools starting around 1600 in Flanders, Italy and France with their Masters, Successors and International Appearances up to the contemporary international violin technique. This summary is based on the knowledge of a number of important violin schools, their masters, techniques, ideas, traditions and anecdotes, orally transmitted by professor Georges Octors (1923-2020), intertwined with the 55 years long performing and teaching experiences of the author, Jenny Spanoghe.
