I'm having trouble with my intonation when playing chords. My teacher tells me I should have the chord ready to be played after playing a single note that is part of the chord (Kreutzer-sonate). My fingers just can not do it without losing my intonation. When I look at his hands, they are much bigger and his fingers longer. I'ld like to know if there are more women who are having trouble playing streched chords, because of their smaller hands, or is it just me. I know when violins were played in earlier days they were a "man" instrument. I hope to find some clues on this site.
