Is there a book or list of books you would consider essential reading for a violinist? I’m becoming more interested in the different schools of playing, and in the different methods of expression throughout history and geographic location. I’m also interested in the development and changes in technique over time to the present, and in the history of the instrument itself.September 5, 2019 at 8:12 pm #29141
Sorry to miss this Jack, but have you read “Lost Secrets of Master Musicians”? Much of it is autobiography and somewhat angry, but there’s so much in there to think about. It’s helped me quite a bit actually!September 7, 2019 at 7:39 pm #29247
Such a great recommendation! Thanks! Just started. Loving it so far! I also ordered Harnoncourt “music as speech.” Do you know that book?October 17, 2019 at 2:04 pm #31446
I’m about to purchase this book at the recommendation from a cellist friend. He said it’s changed his playing immensely.It’s a book explaining the science of intonation.October 22, 2019 at 6:11 am #31758
Oh boy, I can’t wait to hear a review of ViolinMind.
I just ordered What Every Violinist Needs to Know about the Body by Jennifer Johnson (about “body mapping”), on a recommendation from someone who always has good books on his list.
Maybe we should have a book club.🙂
