Bowing #24
• First milliseconds of each note are forte
• Majority of the note is piano
• Make a rapid change from fast bow to slow bow
• Make a rapid change from heavy bow to light bow
• The upbow measure should match the downbow one
• Common mistake: a diminuendo over several beats instead of a subito dynamic change
• Common mistake: a gradual deceleration of bow speed instead of a sudden one
• Common mistake: relying solely on bow speed and ignoring weight changes (varying finger leverage)
