10th month of playing violin has started. I was wrong that this piece isn`t difficult. It is difficult! Extremely difficult! I'll never stop to work on it before it become perfect.
So, Vivaldi's summer again!
Don't know how you will find it. But for me it is . I think that it is at least satisfactory.
Dang, makes me feel like I have really OLD fingers. Lol no way can they move that fast.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
If You want an advice: practice to put the bow back to string silentley. Try not to play from the air. For example: watch in the video - from 0:33 to 0:43 You can see how long the bow is wandering in the open air... and then bumps to the string. Use the pause (if You want to lift the bow) for placing it back on the string. And only then start bowing again.
That is the only one i'd be happy if You fix on this level of learning. About the rest of it - i'm simply happy!
Keep it up, You're doing great!
Oh, forgot to tell: Maybe i'm mistaken but it looks like the bow is over tightened. And over-tightened bow usually doesn't help with smooth landing too. Release the hair a bit and see if it will work. Only one useful thing that i found of over-tightening the bow is easier string-crossing or playing on one string without hitting the others - but that one doesn't go well with all of the disadvantages i've found (like bouncing, harder landing, uncontrollable staccato and etc...).
wow.. congratulations. EXCELLENT!
I too am very impressed. I would love to hear (if you care to share) how you went about tackling such a daunting piece. Were you super familiar with it before? I am very very intrigued.
Awesome Job... It is going to be fantastic one day.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
Thanks!!! Too many responses
Mad Wed, thanks for the advice! I never even thought about it. What I use to do with my bow hand is letting it create a sound somehow. So, for me it always was scratchy or satisfactory. Since it is satisfactory I stop to think about right hand. Now, I suggest that the time has come to improve my bowing.
Coolpincone, no problem. I will post a topic about this piece.
Fiddlerman, that's exactly what I expected you will answer. In fact, I practice it in two ways: 1) with metronome; 2) with orchestra playing in my headphone. Tempo is a mistake that I try to fix. But can't. Give me a time and will fix it.
