  1. in 2 weeks time there is a book launch in Cremona of the first comprehensive monography about Nikolai Kittel.

    Written by the experts on Kittel: Grünke, Gabriel and Chins. 30 Kittel bows in it. And some photos of documents contributed by kenway.

    There will be a lot of your questions and answers in it. www.nikolai-kittel.com



  2. The Milstein/Steinberg is fantastic! This recording made me fall in love with his playing.
  3. whomever it is, its breathtaking!!!
  4. I'm going to spend the entire summer learning down bow staccato!
  5. Because I use the wrist staccato.
  6. I've seen him play Tchaik live twice. Its quite an experience.
  7. My teacher's all about "opening up" and "releasing tension". She talks about it every lesson! but its only to burn in into my skull so that I'll remember it.
  8. hey, its not about how "I" think they should act. There are rules on this board and the rules need to be followed.
  9. When the intonation interrupts the flow of the music, THAT is when it unacceptable. To my ears, her playing was just that.
  10. yeah, but this is the fingerboard...you know, its supposed to be about violin related discussion...
  11. Intonation?? There's no excuse for poor intonation. Listen to Mischa Elman's recordings from around this time. His intonation is nearly Flawless!
  12. ...and how is this related to up bow staccato?
  13. I personally didn't think she was that great. I'm pretty sure this is her. I have a CD of her plaing other stuff and this sounds just like her.
  14. I have the same problem. Both Felicia and Diane say I have a "unique" sound that they love. Intonation isn't my biggest issue, but its one of them. My biggest issue is timing. I just need to pay more attention to the natural pulse of each piece. My Tchaikovsky is getting much better. I'd love to send you a clip of it via email (a small clip) and get your opinion. I have some Bach but the sound quality is terrible. Anyway, I'm happy that things are going well for you, and I really would LOVE to hear you play sometime. -Marty
  15. you'll have to post a sound clip sometime, I'd love to hear you play.
  16. I thought it was Isaac Stern at first, but even Isaac wouldn't have played THAT out of tune!
  17. oh, the single notes at the poco piu lento are no longer played. I wouldn't suggest doing this for a competition, or even for an audition, but if you play it well, I'm sure you'll still get accepted.
  18. here's what I do (and a lot of other people) during th triplet passages on P. 8 (the poco piu lento) the 6th bar of that I take it down an octave (auer's part)just for that one measure. This starts on the D minor chord in 1st inversion. That's about the only Auer thing I do.
  19. Oh, so you play the iupviolin edition!
  20. Oh, come on, Mr. Kempers, everyone knows you can't play the last movement of the Sibelius
  21. I could tell from the first not. NO ONE has a vibrato like that except Heifetz.
  22. when I play naked its a Looong performance
