TRADITIONS of Baroque Violin Playing


Pretty slim pickings at the moment. But as time goes on, there will be ever more appearing...

... for now, my first offerings.

First an Essay about TRADITION, in which I discuss the whys and wherefores of the whole project.

And then, the first actual Essay in the series, which is about how you hold a baroque violin ...

It is in two parts: “Holding the Violin, Part I” , which states the issues, and presents evidence from the sources ... and “Holding the Violin, Part II - The Sources” , which is a more in-depth discussion about the sources themselves, putting them in their historical context.
