Thank you Rachel Barton Pine

April 27, 2013 16:26



Just a quick note to express my thanks to Rachel Barton Pine for recording and distributing her renditions of the Wolfahrt Etudes. As a Suzuki dad who has been learning the violin for the last year along with my daughter, I have really benefited from this course of study and especially the recordings in a very short period of time. I wish that I had found them much sooner.

Ms Pine's accompaniment is a wonderful supplement to the sheet music. It has been a great inspiration and has helped me to gain a greater sense of the complexities of tone and color that can be brought forward in these etudes and in my playing more generally.

I consider myself an absolute beginner but every aspect of my playing has improved since I have started working regularly on them. I am actually wanting to turn on a metronome for the first time since starting the violin.

(A quick note to readers: These are on a dvd rather than a cd. To untether from from my PC, I opened it up on my computer, copied to my desktop and then imported into itunes so that I can use it from my iPhone or iPad on my music stand.)

I also just like listening to them when I go out for a jog or while driving in the car. :)
