Paraphrased quote from a very famous fiddler ----
"There is a tendency to vibrate on only on long notes. This resuts in eighth notes (semiquavers to some of us) having a dead sound.
With Kreisler, Heifetz and Oistrakh there was never a dead sound. Although we sometimes want play with no vibrato, remember that vibrato gives life to the sound."
Discuss ... (This may bring back memories of another vibrato thread, and that's OK. I'm not bringing any of this up as being set in stone. Just give your views, and I promise not to SHOUT!!)
