VIDEOS for Study and Consideration, BOOK 2

Think about these versions of music from Book Two.   Try to imitate the phrasing and expression of the performers.  Imagine that your violin is singing these songs when you play.

Beethoven’s Variations on Handel’s Chorus from Maccabeus

Heifetz plays Bach. You can hear the “Musette” in this recording at 1 minute, 40 seconds.

The Hunters Chorus

The Two Grenadiers

“La Marseillaise”, part of “The Two Grenadiers”

Nice performance of Brahms’ Waltz and Handel’s Bouree .  This young violinist has excellent posture in his left hand. What about his bowing? Where are his eyes going?

Watch this whole video, The Witches Dance, for awesome pizzicato and whistle tones.

Beethoven’s Minuet in G
