This thesis explores Lucien Capet's bowing technique and identifies connections to contemporary violin bowing practices. It includes a developed biography of Capet; a review of the Capet treatise; a historical analysis linking Capet's bowing technique back to his predecessor Baillot and forward to the present day; a detailed comparative analysis that determines Capet's pedagogical connections to Ivan Galamian and Simon Fischer; and an examination of the ramifications of the results including the finding that Capet's technique is a viable and important component to developing refined contemporary bowing technique.
