Bruch String Crossings
I got to the section after the chromatic scale where there there are awkward string crossings. I can't seem to be able to play it, and it only seems to gets worse when I slow it down. Any tips or suggestions on how to practice/play it?
Try practicing articulations under the slurs--for example, if a downbow slur covers three notes, play them down-down-down with stops in between. It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) that this is a slow practice technique.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with that passage.
Thanks for the suggestions, I will try them and see if the passage gets any better.
@Ryan Smith pretty much said it all, I'll add on a few:
