Strokes of a violin bow ? Chopin Etude op10 no1?
on: July 21, 2020, 11:33:02 AM
Hello people,

I was wondering how the Op10 No1 etude from Chopin should sound like.

I heard about "If you learn it according to my instructions it will expand your hand and enable you to perform arpeggios like strokes of the [violin] bow."

I'm trying to figure out which particular stokes of violin Chopin was referring to.

Was it Ricochet, Détaché, Spiccato sautillé, Tremolo, Ponticello, Col legno, Collé, Martelé, Staccato or Legato ?

Thank you for you contribution

Congratulations. You've demonstrated that Chopin's remark should not be taken too concretely. I'll bet you can eliminate some of the possible bowings from your list just by listening to a few recordings of the etude.
