I don't know if this is worthy of a new topic, but I have a question on the first movement of the Barber:
In the part with the string-crossing 16th notes, in the beginning there are always 4 notes on an up-bow (flying) staccato and 4 on a downbow slur, but after 2 (or so) bars there are no more phrasing markings. Are the following figures supposed to continue the phrasing from the first bars (but then there would be a "sim." missing, wouldn't it?), or should they be played straight? I tried to get this answered by listening to my recordings (Shaham and Hahn), but can't decide if they play one bow for each note or do 4 on one bow (with flying staccato).
Thanks in advance for your insights, this may not be a big subject but I'd like to play it the right way.
