Triple Stops - Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso
I'm a student currently working on Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, and i'm having a bit of difficulty with the triple stops at the end of the second to last page. It seems that I keep tensing up my right hand when trying to play all three strings at once, which is painful. I'm wondering if there's a way to make the triple stops sound less abrasive (like I'm attacking them) and more climactic to the finish. My teacher advises coming from the air with my bow, and using a round movement to place my bow onto all three strings. Any additional advice or practice to help me tense up less and create a smooth sound across all three strings?
Just happened to look at the sheet music again a couple of hours ago after some years away from it -- the very same measures you cited.
Try using lots of bow speed, and keep it consistent.
1. Play closer to the fingerboard, where the strings are closer together.
