Where did the Collé stroke originate
I'm trying to trace the evolution of Collé and ways in which the terminology changed for a music project? Such as how Collé was done in the past.
Could anyone give a bit of background on its history or link me to a couple of sources to point me in the right direction?
For now I have an article by Kurt Sassmannshaus and this source below
Thank you, all of this information was very helpful.
I'm a little puzzled. Capet in his treatise promotes the collé stroke as a good way to "energise" the bow stroke in preparation for other staccato strokes, including sautillé or spiccato. Maybe he doesn't use the word "collé": I'll have to check in my (French) copy.
Have you found anything yet, Adrian? I leafed through the English edition and I came up short again. The closest thing I could find was the word 'pinch', and of course martele. In retrospect I'm not too surprised, as Capet doesn't seem very concerned with physical motion involved in playing.
The owners of Lassie invented the Collie Stroke.
There's an interesting book by Kelley M. Johnson,
I think this question is actually two questions: First where does the stroke come from? and second where does the stroke's name come from?
If it is Franco-Belgian, would that be a border colle?
The dissertation can be found in the internet:
Ha! Thanks for pointing that out Eva. I now realize that I downloaded the dissertation first, glanced at it, and bought the book later. The book has been edited, but content seems to be the same.
Edward your joke was a real dog.
Ha! I have just found my copy of Capet's original French treatise, with a page of notes I made (30 years ago!) to compare the various bowstrokes mentioned by Capet, Flesch and Galamian.
