    Carl Flesch Arpeggios Fingering Logic?

    I'm using the 142 page Carl Fischer version
  2. Hi. I see there are two fingerings provided in the Carl Fischer edition (in different fonts: normal & italicized), but the only logic among the same type of arpeggio among different keys seems to only be them being mirrored (same fingerings ascending and descending)... I found it very hard to memorize any of them... Is there a specific logic to remember? Say, for ABRSM (italicized): -mirrored (same fingerings ascending and descending) -use index finger for all tonics -always start the first note on G string -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I cannot ask my teacher about little things anymore because he already calls me a "scientist" for writing all intonation difference in cents out!! Thank you

    Name of Ševčík Études Studied by Hilary Hahn?

    Ok, I'll ask her Really??? So there are 2 composed by others??
  4. "Hahn studied with Brodsky for seven years and learned the études of Kreutzer, Ševčík, Gaviniès, Rode, and the Paganini Caprices. She learned twenty-eight violin concertos, as well as recital programs, chamber works, and assorted showpieces." — Wikipedia Of course, we all know 42 Studies by Rodolphe Kreutzer, 24 Caprices for Violin by Pierre Rode, 24 Mornings by Pierre Gaviniès, and 24 Caprices for Solo Violin, Op.1 by Niccolò Paganini... But how about Ševčík? Which opus is it? Must be essential because Brodsky has to include it between Kreutzer and Gaviniès... Thank you
  5. Yes, I'll hold the violin at the neck
  6. Hi. I read somewhere "holding the violin at the neck for a thousand times will cause the violin to fall apart". How should we hold the violin while walking? Some points to consider: -not to touch the varnish? -not to hold violin by the neck? - not making contact of the bow with the violin as they might scratch each other during walking? -hold both the violin and bow with only one hand, as we might have to move music stand (beginner) , or shake hands with someone (advanced)? Thank you *Here are two famous violinists walking while holding their instruments

    "Correct / Scientific" Body Movement Directions?

    Thanks hahahah, of course I won't copy Bell's moves
  8. Hi. I really like Hilary Hahn as a violinist and I love watching her videos. But, my mom & my friends noticed that my movements became more "straight line" instead of "curves" since a while ago. It's probably due to watching too much of someone, causing unintentional body movement imitation. I realized I do look like a robot after watching some of my recital videos, and Hilary is even more robotic (comparing to Sarah Chang, Kyung Wha Chung, etc.) After analysis, I think there are certain "technical" body movements, such as the contrary motion of the waist during up-bow and down-bow in order to allow smooth bow changes, yet "musical" ones are hard to be judged: are they natural, expressive, matches the music, yet do not make playing even harder? Any tips? Thank you
