Source of These 2 Symbols?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm making a chart about some less frequently used violin symbols. Here are two which I took a picture, but can't find the source:

 

1) use the same finger to stop multiple strings simultaneously
2) hold down the specified finger

Thank you

Well - maybe someone happens to know...

Personally, I don't have parts of 2 individual bars memorized, out of, oh say, a possible trillion. Or is that a conservative estimate? ^_^

@vathek I don't know. But it makes sense to press both D & A strings with the first finger

How?

Maybe I have fat fingers, but I can easily stop two strings with a single finger to sound a perfect 5th chord.

Sure. Fat fingers can be wonderful.

But no matter what position I played those notes in - I didn't need - or find - the suggestion useful.

Is it in a different clef on a different instrument?

I'm at work now...brain is struggling with different puzzles...lol.

The interval in the example is a 6th, which would not be stopped with one finger. None of those notes can be played on the A string. They are too low.

I get it. Editor wants an anticipation of the 5th by keeping 1 finger down on the e and b. I would more normally expect that to be written with a 1 over 1 and a line, not the brace.

@Rue I mean from which piece

Right. That is why I asked where you obtained these pictures.  If you got them from the internet, maybe you can track down the site and see what pieces they were accredited to?  When you say from "printed sheet collection" what does this mean?  I am also curious what pieces they are from.
