How to study bariolage passages?
Hi. I'm an amateur who loves baroque music. I am currently studying the 2nd movement of the Corelli Op. 5 No. VII sonata. And I need some help with the bariolage passages, because each time I try to play them, I start crashing sith the incorrect strings, playing far from the bridge and sometimes I even include ligatures that don't exist, which make me end up with a reversed bowing.
There's no need to say these are almost the first bariolage passages I have encountered, and I want them to sound perfect, since they are so beautiful and... "baroque".
I am quite sure you're trying to use too much bow, and you aren't paying attention to exactly where the string crossings occur.
Take Mary Ellen's advice. :-)
I learned a technique where you play double stops. Say you have a four-note bariolage over all four strings. You can play that as three double stops. This helps more with left hand though, not so much with bowing.
If you're talking about the part the goes C-E-D-E-C-E-B etc from the Corrente:
Thank you very much!
