To devote himself to Mozart as a craftsman, a lover of the work of detail, of a humble and well-made gesture, of the knowledge of each curve and listening to "notes that love each other" (Mozart looks for them and finds them in his third year) This is the invitation of this book. The methodical progress of the detailed exercises here intends to propose a form of polishing of the gesture, as one polishes little by little, of a finer grain, a stone or a precious wood. It deserves to be read and understood as an access to the liberated gesture. If Mark were next to you when you start one of the exercises in this book, you would not feel that anything would be imposed on you; he would invite you there, knowing already where his practice and his comprehension can lead you, if you wish it.
