A new violinists' website asserts that when we use vibrato, we oscillate behind the correct pitch (flat) and back to it. However, I've heard other definitions which claim we oscillate *beyond* the correct pitch (sharp) and behind it (flat). I can't imagine this is a matter of interpretation, since there's surely a scientific explanation for the overall pitch of the note we hear. Does anyone have any evidence to back up their view of vibrato and its mechanics? P.S. I don't!
