I study music by listening to it and at the same time reading the score.
I also have the Strad.... now you know what is itching.
I want to write a Concerto for Solo violin.
But when studying scores I never see those special notations for violin players around like Spiccato, Ricochet, Marcato, Détaché and so on.
Didn't our esteemed composers like Sibelius, Beethoven, Mendelssohn and others put those in their original scores and are all interpretations just an idea of the soloist?
Please tell me more......
