Carlo Farina's score of his Capriccio stravagante (1627), written in treble (G) clef, for "Il Gatto." His avertimenti explain the technique later called glissando: "The cat is played by making the notes die, that is, by shifting the [left] hand [of the violinist] backwards a little at a time; but the sixteenth notes are played ungracefully and badly, that is, by making the bow run above and below the bridge, just as cats do when they scatter away." He goes on to explain that "the dog is played in the opposite way from the cat, continually shifting [the left hand] furiously upwards."
