The teachers and students will work with sundry repertoire, the tone production and technical aspects of violin playing. Students are expected to bring music of their own choice, but we encourage facsimile editions of original prints or manuscripts.

The focus will primarily be on music of the 17th and 18th centuries, with particular emphasis on exploring the elements of the theory of affects in the studied works and the techniques to express musical-rhetorical figures. Further topics include, for example, the phrasing and bowing in the French, Italian and German repertoire of dance music for violin of the 17th and 18th centuries, or the virtuoso style of the late Italian sonatas with special attention to tempo rubato and ornamentation.
