Bibliography for Music Phrasing
Dear Violinists community,
I am studying for my Bachelor Dissertation & the topic will be around Music Phrasing, possibly around the application of phrasing techniques on violin.
Do you have any recommendations on book titles, magazines, other dissertations etc?
You might try issues of THE STRAD MAGAZINE (published in England). There might also be articles in copies of STRINGS magazine. I think these magazines have internet access (for a price) - try contacting the publishers. FIDDLER magazine might have some information (for a different genre).
mr. Vector, your comment is really helpful. Thanks a lot!!
Go to scholar.google.com type "violin phrasing" into the search bar. That will give you enough to get started.

Bachelor's Dissertation ? -- Sounds unusual. They will probably give you some slack on length and originality. Graduate students in Western Musicology have a tough time finding an original, non-trivial topic. The Germans did all the important work 150 years ago.
"the violin slur is more specific. It shows where to change bow direction."
Charis, if Mr Vector was that helpful, why not promote him to a tensor?
John, clearly, he's a humble man who is satisfied just pointing people in the right direction.
Go away and practise your scalars.
