ms ann fontanella, ( what a player!), on this clip demonstrated and also explained (to answer a question) that her bow grip is a russian prodigy grip,,,with higher elbow with stronger pinkie.
i am as astonished by her beautiful sound as by her STRONG pinkie and have a hard time putting the 2 together as i watched the clip, esp those passages near the frog. doesn't that hurt? :)
please explain the advantage of this approach. i could be mistaken, but i think her teacher and teacher's teacher did not hold bows like that.
