Approaches to Studying Recorded Musical Performanc
I just came upon this on-line "book" that may be of interest to some of our members:
It has an extensive chapter on violin and one on piano.
I have not read it all yet, but it came up as I was searching for some references on vibrato.
The link didn't work for me. Can it be made so I can click it?
Sorry - it still works for me. I don't know how to do "that." I just highlight and copy the URL and paste it in my browser search line.
Thanks Andrew, that looks like an impressive piece of work and I'll enjoy reading it.
That's a great read Mr. Victor.
Not bad, Prof Leech-Wilkinson, but a bit underwhelming I thought. The take-home message seems to be that over the last 100 or so years violin performance styles, as defined by depth and speed of vibrato and measures of portamento in recordings of the Beethoven and Brahms concertos, haven't changed as much as we might have assumed.
