  1. Same Finger Double Stops?

    Hi I tried to practice double stops for Haydn Concerto in C, and I conclude everyone saying the tips of playing double stops is to relax our left hands I noticed there is one double stop, with the notes G4 and D5, requires me to play both notes using the Left hand index finger, but I found if I use the tip of my finger, it is physically impossible to press both strings stable, yet using pads to press (flattening only my index finger) kind of produce tension So confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How do you guys play that type of chord?
  2. CD Audio Qualities

    I love listening to CDs but I found older recordings (Jascha Heifetz, Yehudi Menuhin, etc) tend to have some background "sssssss" noises, anyone knows why and starting from which year these noises are not recorded? P.S. will "remastering" remove these noises? thx
  3. Intonation of Double-Stops?

    Thanks, I think I will play them as the same for now, although I guess my teacher was talking about the "Notes" have different pitches depending on their function thing as I should've already been a experienced musician but I am not sensitive enough, thus, I can't even play all double-stops in tune so I shouldn't "learn to run before knowing how to walk"
  4. Intonation of Double-Stops?

    Or was it *the placement of fingers* are different comparing to that played one after one, instead of the pitch being different????????? If yes then everything makes sense
  5. Intonation of Double-Stops?

    A teacher once told me the intonation of two notes played simultaneously is different comparing to that played one after one, for one note at a time, I can find the EXACT pitch of notes by looking at the open strings (whether they're vibrating when playing GDAE notes on other strings) or a tuner set to 440khz, but, how can I find out if both of my double-stop notes land on the "correct" pitch if they're "different than exact pitch"??????????????????
  6. The articulation of this theme (C E F G) [Represented by top line notes] drives me insane!! I know the staccato on F means it should be shortened, but, the (semiquaver F) should be played as (a demisemiquaver F + a demisemiquaver rest) or (a demisemiquaver rest + a demisemiquaver F)?? Because I saw different interpretations online!! By famous violinists Thxxx
  7. Bow Hair of Bow Strokes???

    Should we keep using full hair when bowing from tip to frog (for basic full bows)? Because the book I learn at first said "when bowing near the frog, the bow should be slightly tilted outwards (hair towards bridge), as the hair hear frog is tighter, which makes sound harder to produce" ??????????????????
  8. Violin Holds???

    The Placement of Violin is generally similar: -"Violin" is horizontal -E string's side tilted to right a bit (Correct me if I'm wrong) But I observe that the definition of a "horizontal violin" varies, is the BODY OF THE VIOLIN or the FINGERBOARD parallel to the floor (without left hand, with whole body relaxed)?
  9. Bow Holds???

    I wanna hold the bow following the Franco-Belgian style as I tried the German & Russian style but they don't feel suitable (comfortable) to me... But I don't know if my bow hold is "Franco-Belgian" enough? Or is it still "generally considered as wrong"??? A. Franco-Belgian "The (2)index finger comes into contact with the stick at the extreme end of its second joint, which is hereby thrust further forward to a noticeable degree. There is an intervening space between (2)index and (3)middle fingers, with the (1)thumb opposite to the (3)middle finger; the bow-hair being at an excessive tension and the stick in an inclined position." *Notes By Itzhak Perlman: -(2)index finger's second joint -Space between all fingers -(5)little finger tip rest on wood bent B. German: -(2)index finger's first line "The index finger presses upon the stick with its lower surface, on an approximate level with the knuckle between the first and second joints; whereby the remaining fingers are brought into the position thus determined, the thumb lying opposite the middle finger. All the fingers are pressed closely together, and the bow-hair is moderately tensed." C. Russian: -(2)index finger's second line "The index finger touches the stick at the line separating the second from the third joint, and in addition embraces with its fist and second joints. There is a very small interval between index and middle finger. The index finger assumes the guidance of the bow, and the little finger only touches it at its lower half while playing. The bow hairs being slack, the stick held straight."
  10. Standing???

    Hi guys I have learned playing the violin for 10 years but never investigate deeply until last week: I use the Franco-Belgian bow hold but I am confused which standing style is the most suitable, generally considered "correct"? A. Some YouTuber: 1)Stand together 2)V Position 3)Left foot moves slightly forward & Left B. Some YouTuber: -feet to be on the same plane to shoulder width apart -weight evenly distributed between the two feet C. Baillot, Pierre: -the body straight and supported by the left side -so that the right side is left unconstrained -the arm can act with greater freedom without giving any motion to the body -the right foot pointing at approximately an 45 degree angle to the left foot -facing straight ahead at the music D. Spohr, Louis: -the body straight and supported by the left side -so that the right side is left unconstrained -the arm can act with greater freedom without giving any motion to the body -the right foot pointing at approximately an 80 degree angle to the left foot -turn the face towards the music stand so that the view falls onto the music over the bridge and the left hand *I will test each of them after dinner
