I have been playing the violin for 11 years and now I am working on some more advanced pieces like Bruch violin concerto or Praeludium and Allegro. Recently, I have realised that I still cannot play all the difficult passages (double stops, fast notes or differnt bow strokes) even though I have practiced them more than one year almost every day. It simply doesn´t sound nicely although I am trying hard. I am wondering if the problem is my violin. It has quite decent sound but poor responsiveness and projection compared to many other violins. My luthier told me that the value of my instrument is around 600 dollars.
I would like to hear your opinions and experiences about this topic. Do you think should I practice more or the problem is really my violin?
