September 1, 2013 at 3:29 PMViolin Lounge TV Q&A about a cadenza of the Tschaikovsky Violin Concerto in D:
"Hello there Zlata! I am currently self-learning the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D, Op. 35. I'm having problems with the fingerings for the chords (double notes?) between D and E and lines 6-9 of the cadenza. Could you kindly offer any tips as to how to tackle these or fingerings if possible? I'm using the version attached: it's the Ševcík revision, and I like that it offers many fingerings. Thank you very much! - Vincent Han"
In this video I will share with you 4 strategies that will help you tackle this difficult piece and other pieces in the future!
1. Know what intervals you are playing
2. Try different fingerings
3. See you can write down something that is enharmonic the same
4. Practice scales of chromatic thirds (for example from Carl Flesch's book)
