Have you ever noticed that when a professional Violinist or Violist starts playing Really fast that it almost looks like someone took the regular speed of the video and sped it up? Head movements and other body movements tend to become extremely short and crisp while arm and hand movements become a blur.

What nuances to a performance have you all noticed?

I have noticed that most classical violinist look like they hate the world. Hateful glares and grimaces declared as expression. While, fiddlers on the other hand, can make you get up and dance to a death dirge.

I've noticed. I tried to work on my colleagues when in the orchestras I worked in. Most of them are hopeless. :-(

Sounds like they just don't drink enough :D cheers Of course I'm predominantly Scottish, Irish, and Italian so I was bred to consume alcohol and Carbohydrates of just about any form coffee2  But you are right they do need to loosen up a bit.  Not necessarily lose they're composure and start going wild during the performance, though that would be hilarious to see, but a little feeling, a smile, some head swaying, that doesn't look like they're trying to shake a bee out of their ear, something!

That's it we must teach all overly somber musicians how to feel again!!!!!!!

I've noticed that as well.  I wonder if I'll to that too.  I wonder if they are trained to do that, like part of the showmanship part of it?  Are they coached to move around etc. to make it more interesting?  To me, that distracts from it.
