Mazas Etudes Speciales, Opus 36: Book 1 for Violin & Viola
The Opus 36 etudes by Jacques-Féréol Mazas are a fundamental part of many viola and violin students’ education. However, a high quality recording was not easily accessible and commercially available to parents and students. Dr. Lisa McNiven recognized this deficiency and decided on a pedagogical recording project to solve the problem.

Both the violin and viola recordings are available at:
