I know this stuff is discussed often, but it seems like this generation of solo violinists are moving so much more than past generations.
For example, Joshua Bell. I really like him and I think his playing is fantastic, but I can't ever watch him play. I'm so completely turned off by the manner in which he jumps around stage and almost bends his knees so much he's sitting on the ground. (Not to mention the facial expressions)
Is there a teacher or something out there that all this movement can be pinned to? Does anyone else get nauseous when watching certain players? It's really unfortunate because Josh is off the list of people I watch play on Youtube. (which is my favourite past time)
