What could be more amusing than that?? You can't tell me you didn't burst out laughing when you saw that part. Well, I know I did, at least. Oh, and Cerulean, the old man in Amadeus is supposed to be Salieri.
  2. Thank you, everyone. I think I understand now.
  3. Whoops. Dammit. I hate how it's impossible to change a typo in a heading. Maybe I should just be more careful...
  4. If there is only one voice being heard on a recording, like the Bach Sonatas and Partitas, how could the same recording in mono and stereo be distinguished? I was under the impression that stereo was used to make certain voices louder in one channel, and other voices more prominent in the other channel. Is that right? Thank you for any responses.
  5. Sheesh. Everybody likes the Spring, I guess. That's my favorite too. Then, probably #1.
  6. quote: Originally posted by summer_breeze: i was thinking about the viola concerto in suzuki book 6 for viola i think. It is is B major B major? Helluva nasty key. 5 sharps. Phew.
  7. What!?!! HKV using a VIBRATO???!?
  8. I've tried the Infeld Red E, and it is goldplated, and it gives me this problem, but the Pirastro Oliv E, also gold, does not give me this problem. I like the Pirastro a lot better. It doesn't ring (on my violin), and its sound is more subdued, yet sweeter than the Infeld Red. I have only used both in medium gauge. Oh, and perhaps the reason for this is that I cannot get the little cushion thingie off the Pirastro string, while I always can, and do, on the Infeld. Well, that's about all I can contribute to the subject. [This message has been edited by Jascha (edited 03-17-2001).]
  9. Lydia, I just wanted to ask, will there be repeats of the violinists? That is, do you plan on using the same violinist for more than one piece?

  11. Wow. All I can say is, GO LYDIA! quote: Originally posted by lwl: 1. As I said on the "announcement" side of this post, I am tired of people claiming that all the moderns are not identifiable, and all the previous generation is. Now, people can put their money where their mouth is. I am *particularly* interested to hear what HKV thinks, given that he has made two claims which I think are very difficult to substantiate: that he can recognize the students of Auer, and that he can tell who has and hasn't done Kreutzer. At some point in time, dramatic assertions need to be substantiated. This, I think, is a very fair way of doing so. Sooner or later, if you keep making remarks that stretch credulity, somebody is going to call you on it. And make no mistake -- I *am* calling HKV on it. Afraid that your assertions are just hot air, HKV? You've already gotten plenty of hints on this thread -- shouldn't be that hard, now! If anyone is experiencing technical problems downloading the clips, please post here, or email me, and I'll be glad to help. (I absolutely don't mean to accuse HKV of cowardice if he's having technical issues getting the clips!)
  12. I thought the "t" stood for "tight".
  13. The things that get in the way of my playing are my left hand fingers and my bow. My fingers won't move fast enough, and they won't slide to the notes I want them to either, and my bow won't bounce the way I want it to!
  14. I'll care. You always had interesting posts. I had noticed your absence since about the end of the summer. Well, goodbye. I hope everything's ok.
  15. An Eb and a Bb form the key of G minor. Is this the sort of stuff you are looking for?
  16. Oops. I wasn't supposed to guess here. Doesn't really matter anyway. I had no idea. [This message has been edited by Jascha (edited 03-07-2001).]
  17. quote: Originally posted by illuminatus: 2nd movement of Beethoven piano concerto 2nd movement of Appasionata by Beethoven Which Beethoven Piano Concerto, illuminatus? You probably just forgot to put the number. Hmmm. Lemme take a wild guess it's the third.
  18. I like especially the 2nd movements of: Beethoven's 7th Beethoven's Violin Concerto Bach's Double Violin Concerto Bach's Violin Concerto No. 1 in a minor
  19. Fritz is a girl? I didn't know that.
  20. Joachim? is it yo-AHK-im? or yo-ah-KIM? or what?
  21. That is hilarious! "What used to be a violin." "I guess it could be used for decoration if you want." Good to see some honest advertising.
  22. quote: Originally posted by MacCeol: as for bad violin movies? tom hanks, "the man with one red shoe" or something like that(maybe one left foot? i don't remember)but that's some bad violin exposure! I will agree with you on the criticism of the violin faking by Tom Hanks, but The Man with One Red Shoe is a very good, well written, and funny movie. You ought to see it again, and try to ignore the bad violin faking. (And that is not the funny part of which I spoke) Another good movie is Take the Money and Run, in which there is some bad cello faking, for those interested. Also a well done and funny movie. One of Woody Allen's first. The beginning is very funny, but kind of peters out toward the end, but it ends shortly after.
