Hi! I wanted to do some research into Hans Sitt I was wondering if anyone could recommend some books or journal articles or something for me to look at?
I'm sorry to say that I find Sitt's studies to be about the dreariest of any. Almost as bad as Alard and Dancla.
I don't want to be guilty of thread drift at response 1, but I was thinking the same thing about Mazas the other day - he came 16 years after Kreutzer. What did he think he was offering that Kreutzer hadn't provided?
Musicality haha. Rather do a Mazas than a Kreutzer
I'm sitting the rest of this one out. :)
Hans sit, Hans stay, Hans shake.
All right Erik that was pretty good.
I like Sitt.
Sitt is a zit on the violinist's bum.
So, I stand on my feet and sitt on my hans.
To the OP Lucy,
So, Gabriel makes a good point that many of Sitt's studies have found their way into compilations. A really good one is the two-volume set by Charles Levenson.
