Example text

Although seemingly different visually, the physical motion is the same as playing two sixteenth notes in a rapid tempo, with the first sixteenth on the beat (or with first sixteenth preceding the beat). The stroke is another reflex motion like the playing of two rapid sixteenth or thirty-second notes in succession. For orchestral excerpts using this bowing, see Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique, fourth movement (p. 84-85). Conclusion The bowings that should be included in daily practice are in examples 1–11a, 13–17, 20–23, and 24–26.

This process of retrieval, or recovery, is required in many figures where elongated notation leaves one at the tip end of the bow, when a preparatory short up-bow is required for the next portion of a passage or rhythm. The act of bow recovery should occur before the short note. As stated, neglect in using the practice of retrieval or bow recovery before playing shorter pick-up note will usually result in an unintended surge and exaggeration of the short stroke when articulated before recovery.

Each basic bowing stroke usually has a program of its own that needs to be learned. The bowings include slurring, spiccato, staccato, hooked bowings (dotted eighth followed by sixteenth), and bowings that are combinations of two basic strokes. The latter can also create a completely new physical challenge. Programming the above left and right hand/arm patterns to be automatic responses (programs stored by the brain) enables a player to use the most basic and advanced techniques as tools to construct and perfect musical passages.
