Hello all, I'm curious of a common (too common technique) in modern violining.
Why DO we need vibrato? It's a superficial technique used to cover up shoddy technique imo. One can easily surpass the "richness" of vibrato with proper bowing and emotion. I and many of my friends never use it and teach our students the same way, harkening back to many of the Old Masters.
So why do we?
