"Johann Sebastian Bach was the greatest harmonizer of all time" Miriam Fried
"At the beginning, the student plays the Allemande of this partita, and the master indicates that since it is a first movement, it is an invitation to listen. Regarding the character in particular, she emphasizes that it is somber, it is not a functional dance, and that it works more like an overture.
Then, the master talks about certain rhythmic aspects to take into account, and certain contrasts, and that in this piece nothing is an accident, everything is intentional, including the different patterns.
"Later, they work on the different bowings, and on the need to complete the sentences, which are generally determined by harmony. In this sense, the master affirms that “Johann Sebastian Bach was the greatest harmonizer of all time."" On sound, she highlights the importance of resonance, which is achieved via vibrato.
Undoubtedly, it is a very interesting class in which the bases for a technically correct and expressive interpretation of a key piece for the violin are worked on.
