I read somewhere that Dorothy Delay was famous for teaching her students a big full tone and how to project it. Can anyone tell me her secrets? Is that the "tone" I can hear when I hear Isaac Stern play in recording of the Brahms concerto? Is it an actual bowing technique or left and right hands, or is it more of a mental thing combined with the hands? I think Schlomo Mintz was one of her students...? I heard him play the Sibelius in a live concert and it blew me away! It was really top notch.
