Advanced Vibrato (Higher Positions & Double Stops) for Upper Strings
Monday 5 and 12 October
A two-part series focusing on developing vibrato for advanced violinists & violists. A follow on to the July vibrato session, but equally as accessible to new participants, these sessions will allow you to extend your vibrato skills in the higher positions and with double stops and to explore the different colours and textures which can be achieved for different characters. This is recommended for advanced players
Join the Benedetti Foundation for two sessions exploring the 1st movement of Elgar’s Serenade for Strings.
Across the two days, you will have the opportunity to work both together and in individual sections. We’ll be looking at ensemble skills, the structure and story of the piece, harmony, interpretation, and healthy playing as well as the technical details within each instrumental part.
You will receive the parts and tutorial videos to help you to prepare from the beginning of January.
