Glad too you chose the Sevcik exercise. The Bach might have been a bit intimidating (:
I actually tried to do Bach but it was hard to talk about how to do the intervals. Check this out. The address is private so you won't find it on my channel. I watched it and hated it. Can't stand watching it.
Sneak preview for you guys before I delete it. LOL Did it at the same time as the Sevcik.
I hope you leave this up, Im interested in Bach pieces and would like to concentrate on this after the holidays. I think you play Bach beautifully. I need to add a couple classical pieces to my repertoire
@fiddlerguy- I don't hear or see anything, I repeat, ANYTHING wrong with this, and considering you were talking/instructing AND playing beautifully and with such feeling is even more impressive- what is to hate? Is someone being a little hard on themselves? And BTW, I have an oh so excellent ear! I have been listening to Perlman on Spotify play BWV 1001-06 (obviously a concert performance), ever since I bought the Schirmer book, so my opinion isn't based on the first time hearing it (: Please leave this up! Please?
@Barry- Thank you for posting this! I appreciated Pierre's advice on this one, and it is good advice, the not allowing it to sound like an etude, in particular, and really feeling the music- Bach is perhaps more of a feeling, and not merely a technical skill. I have noticed both with Perlman and Pierre that it is the "phrasing" that really makes it- minute pauses, or slight changes in tempo with crescendo/decrescendo, those nuances that the music notation itself does not reflect. The Adagio he played is a Cantabile, which means "song-like", the violin is the voice (: BWV 1001-06 is dance music- lots of Allemanda, Minuet, Corrente, Sarabande, Bouree, etc.
I don't play as much Classical these days, but Bach to me is an essential (:
You would like the Cello Suites (BWV 1007-12) solo violin arrangement, if you aren't already familiar with them (: You are probably familiar with the Prelude (BWV 1007), and the Bouree (Jethro Tull did a jazzy version). The Adagio Pierre played is from Sonata No. 1 in G minor (BWV 1001), and you can find BWV 1001-1006 here (I bought the book before I realized it was on IMSLP).
Thank you again, Barry, for posting this (:
