  1. Could anyone inform me which publisher publishes Massimo Paris' cadence of Locatelli L’arte Del Violino 25 capricci Op. 3? "Massimo Paris" is a professor and writes beautiful cadences for Locatelli L'arte Del Violino. http://www.jacoponapoli.it/ing/ingviola.php
  2. Dear maestronetters, I appreciate you in taking time viewing and responding to the above subject. This subject is instigated because I am looking for a way which enables someone who is tied up to acquire quite advanced technique. If we look at the development of violin playing, we could see that the following violinist composers had set the foundation of violin playing in their own right. Tartini (1692-1770) with his Devil Trill and 50 variations on a Corelli theme (The art of bowing) Locatelli (1693-1764) with his set of "L'Arte del Violino" in 1733 Gavinies (1728-1800) with his 24 caprices in 1800(?) Kreutzer (1766-1831) with his 42 studies in 1800 Rode (1774-1830) with his 24 caprices in 1814-1819 Paganini (1782-1840) with his 24 caprices in 1820 De Beriot (1802-1870) with his L'Ecole transcendentale Ernst (1814-1865)with his 6 caprices Dont (1815-1888) with his 24 caprices Vieuxtemps (1820-1881) with his 6 concert studies Wieniawski (1835-1880) with his 10 L'Ecole Moderne What has become my question, is that, as far as the essentiality is concerned, may we presume that Locatelli caprices which were written in 1733 well before the Kreutzer, Rode, Gavinies and Dont be considered caprices which are possible to learn even though one hasn't learnt Kreutzer, Rode, Gavinies and Dont and therefore if someone is looking for a kind of shortcut, once he is familiarized with positions in violin-playing through scales regime, he may step up to Locatelli, then Paganini before learning Ernst. I saw somewhere in the biographies that Paganini, Gavinies and Ysaye themselves learnt Locatelli and Locatelli had already been written before the other studies which aid as the intermediate studies were written. How would you rank all the above etudes in term of difficulty level and essentiality level? This topic is again, triggered, not due to favoritisim to a particular set of caprices or intention in forming a view of which set of caprices are more formidable. How much would you agree to the Scales - Locatelli - Paganini progression in acquiring the advanced technique if time isn't at our disposal? Otherwise, your recommendation is highly appreciated. Thanks.
  3. This is more helpful compared to previous...
  4. Just what significance it has in violinistic history. Is it harder than Dont, Gavinies and Wieniawski Ecole Moderne?
  5. Does anyone know which edition of Bach Solo Violin Sonatas and Partitas Enesco used? Which edition is closest to the Bach's original writings? Thank you.
  6. Here is something you can take as reference: http://www.allmusic-mag.net/lim/ You might want to try Chinese University of Hong Kong to see if the music faculty there knows where he is now.
  7. quote: Originally posted by bleeviola: As of today, 1 Australian dollar = .52 US dollar. So I would say that you can, if you look very hard, find a very good violin for about $4000 in the US. You won't get any kind of famous name, but you can get a violin that sounds wonderful. You are right. The violin I saw bears no name but has beautiful sound.
  8. I have tried quite a few here in Australia and the conclusion is AUD8000. It has the sound which I believe most people will like. Still, I am wondering if a decent professional violin may cost less than AUD8000. How about in USA?
  9. Thanks. I am going to put this thread under the Pegbox and close this one.
  10. I had the opportunity to play on a violin made in the late 19th century which has a very fading label "Vuillaume" even though I doubt very much it is the case. The violin was priced at US$5000 and it has the mellow and dark sound which sounds beautiful. Does anyone know what is the major characteristic of a Vuillaume and how much a real Vuillaume might cost? The second question is, for those who have ever heard a Guadagnini violin, what is the major characteristic of a Guadagnini?

  13. quote: Originally posted by RTH: Dear Ysaye, All I know is that it is a three-LP set issued by Sine Qua Non. People who own it have told me that the sonics are not outstanding and this is not Ferras at his best, but this is a matter of personal opinion. Did you know that the entire Beethoven sonata cycle with Ferras and Barbizet have been reissued on CD by EMI Classics? (The set includes the 5 cello sonatas with Tortelier). Regards, RTH RTH, Thanks. I am not aware of the reissue of Beethoven Sonata on EMI Classics. BTW, can I write you an email?
