One example : Gregor Piatigorsky was a highly skilled orchestral player (principal and solo 'cellist of the Berlin Philharmonic) before coming to the USA and launching a purely soloist career. When he acquired the Batta Stradivari 'cello, he kept it at home for a year, learning how to play it while continuing to perform with his Montagnana. Only after exploring every aspect of the Stradivari, and mastering the adaptions in his technique necessary to play it did he take it out in public. It would be better, IMO, if you got over yourself. No one here answers to you. Simplistic or realistic? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
