This morning, when I recorded and listened back to the opening of the Sibelius Concerto, I heard for the first time, how the lack of vibrato on so many notes while adding vibrato on certain, selected notes, really disrupted my phrasing!
The notes that got vibrato were super zingy (in my case) and it totally sounded like an accent. Initially, I thought it had something to do with my bow arm… until i realized it wasn’t!
Anyway, I’m so glad I heard this for myself because it’s something that has been pointed out to me over the years but it just never clicked until today.
I hope to read some of your breakthroughs/ light bulb moments. Happy practicing!July 14, 2019 at 5:49 pm #26282
Congrats! I love a lightbulb moment – it sometimes illuminates other ideas, too!July 16, 2019 at 10:28 pm #26440
Great idea, Lisa, and I love that you have a Gravatar (picture) also!
How interesting that you noticed this for yourself, and am I right in remembering that Bob DeMaine noticed something similar?July 17, 2019 at 1:05 pm #26479
Haha, Yes… I WILL get this! Vibrato and I are friends!August 1, 2019 at 4:37 pm #27272
I think you might be remembering Bob’s comments on my Sibelius Concerto.. 🙈
He said to listen to every little minute detail, making sure every note had a beautiful sound/vibrato (“expensive sound”). I’ll go the bank and make my withdrawals. 😃
