This is excellent the bowing is so straight and I love the twiddly quick bits I think you are so light when you put your fingers down on the strings and they are square on top too ! It sounds great! Thumbs up from me really liked it.

@stringy -

Amazing! 

Looks like you managed to relax your bowing arm, wrist and hand to release some really beautiful sound out of your violin! 

AND... you did it while recording! 

You better give yourself a bunch of pats on the back.

Did you change anything else? 

Thank you for sharing this! 

 

Know you've wanted to play some serious Classical music and I give you a lot of credit because Classical has pretty strict phrasing (if you want Mozart to sound like Mozart). 

This is not the critique section, but maybe try not to lose those individual B quarter notes and the importance of all those rests. 

My next step would be wear an earbud or headphones to play along with a good violinist's YouTube recording, set at .75 speed (approx what I think you're playing now) - before playing with accompaniment.

I have absolutely no doubt you'll succeed with this!

@stringy -

I wasn't really thinking of tempo. 

I believe "phrasing" is so much more.  Classical composers use all the notation symbols to dictate expression - exaggeration is important for the sake of communicating important feeling, e.g., like emphasis in reciting poetry or acting in a play.  Even how you take a breath can be very expressive.

About the B's - maybe I was wrong, but just thought you were playing 1 long B - instead of 4 separate quarter notes.  If so, think those 4 separate notes are an important reoccurring motif in this piece.  I've seen them done all on 1 stroke, but with exaggerated pauses in between. 

Did you remove your video because you are running out of video storage space?  I'm running out, I don't want to pay for any - not sure what I'll do. 

Or, did you just want this thread removed?

I love learning about the music you are interested in.  I always enjoy our discussions - miss all the "brain storming" I used to have with my artist friends. 

I hope your new teacher is very strict and challenges you.

@Emily I took it down because it was garbage, I have rre done it and posted it again, Its a lot closer to how it should sound now, not perfect because I struggle with the signs for crescendo and such, so I listened to someone play i t on you tube and realised you were right so did it again, thats the kind of input I need which you gave me otherwise I can be quite lazy whenit comes to trying ro perfect things rather than just improve aspects of my playing, I should perfect each piece. About the Bs I didnt realise they were seperate notes thats why I played them twice as long as they should have been lol, I have now learned what that sign means the dotted notes with the tie.

Anyway dont know if its any better, but I have improved by bowing by about five hundred percent since thursday, my arm just started to loosen up on its own and become more fluid very odd.

mistakes near the end but I couldnt be bothered recording it again, as I am cooking atthe moment😁😁

Sounding good, @stringy.  I think Mozart is sneaky-tricky sometimes--I know when I look at a piece, I think (at first), Oh, this isn't going to be bad.  Then I realize I'm mistaken after about 4-5 measures.
