I know I might get some criticism on what I am about to say, but it must be said. I love athletic playing. When a violinist makes violin playing look like sport, I love it. You know, the hair all flying in the face and sweat dripping. She looks like she is in an intense tenis match. I am sorry, but athletic playing just makes for a way more exciting performance. What I would give to have loose hair (besides having to do a weave, because my real hair can only form a stationary afro) flying all in my face, playing with reckless abandon and perfection.
Forget about technique and posture, blah blah...but what do you feel makes for a great performance,?
