That is what I just read in a previous post at http://www.violinist.com/discussion/response.cfm?ID=11499
as stated by Mr.Emil Chudnovsky. I found this curious enough to start a new thread, so please let me know what you think:
1. Is it true that their technique was deficient viewed from today's perspective?
2. If so, in which regards they were backwards?
3. How those 'flaws' were corrected by later players?
4. Would not be unfair and hasty to assess their technical ability based on recordings made with very primitive equipment and when those gentlemen were quite aged?
5.On the other hand, are there some violinists around with the eyes in the future who consider the way violin is taught and performed nowadays by most schools is in certain aspects already behind and that after some more years of research we will establish even better and faster learning patterns?
