What is Perlman doing here?
At about 7:46 between movements Perlman is seen moving something back from the bridge - what is it? It can be seen throughout the piece.
It`s a mute. He puts it on at 5:58 for the following con sordino ("with mute") passage and slides it back off at 7:46.
In the con sor, I appreciate how he drifts off those long notes with moving the sound point to the fingerboard.
Katarina B. - okay thanks!
