Flausino Vale and his Preludes for violin solo
I’m a violinist and fulltime faculty at The Universidade Federal da Paraíba (UFPB), Department of Music, in Brazil. During this Fall term 2018 I’m in a sabbatical period as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at San Francisco State University/School of Music, in San Francisco, CA. My main goal during this period will be carrying out a research on the Preludes for violin solo from the Brazilian violinist and composer Flausino Vale (1894-1954). The purpose of this research at this moment is to introduce this Vale’s work to selected violinists, violists and scholars. The following steps will investigate my hypothesis that these preludes would be potentially suitable for being used for pedagogical matters.
I have been studying and researching on this composer and his preludes for violin solo for a long time. Now I’m working in trying to understand some new aspects of this work and its potential to be used as violin studies to improve some violin/viola technical skills. During my short stay in the US I hope to be able to reach and or to meet violinists, violists and scholar to introduce these preludes and try to get as many feedback as possible regarding some of my thoughts
I’d like to take advantage of this venue at violinist.com web site and invite you to participate on this research by answering a short survey (see link below) and helping me to get some feedback which will be crucial to keep this research running before going any further with this project.
Any help, comments or questions will be deeply appreciated.
