My question is about the first cadenza in the first movement of the Sibelius concerto, where it begins the velore scale on the G string. After the scale, there is the section of broken diminished chords across three strings. In the edition I have, the bowings work out to be upbow every downbeat. I find this tedious and absurd. Upon looking at the piano score, the bowings were different and more economical. With little alteration, the bowing could work out to be downbow on the downbeat at this section. Does anybody know of a good bowing that has worked for them? Also, the g minor arpeggio section in the next cadenza has funky bowings, any ideas?
