I hate Him.. respectfully
I was told and then discovered through listening that Sitt's melody lines do not follow a pattern, which makes memorising a little difficult, which forces one to read the music... lucky me!
Sight reading is what i consider torture.. i believe i stated in lesson that i would rather swallow razor blades!
Well.. this may be a slight exaggeration.
Hans Sitt 100 Studies, Op. 32 Book 1: 20 Studies in 1st Position - numbers 1 & 5.
Numbers 14 & 19 are to be attempted for homework senza referencing on the internet - i promised the Maestro, so i'd best be a good girl.. which will not be a hard thing to do considering i have not attempted this yet and it is almost that time of the week again.
the good girl with the blue violin
Hans Sitt 21 September 1850, Prague – 10 March 1922, Leipzig
A German violinist, teacher, and composer. During his lifetime, he was regarded as one of the foremost teachers of violin. Most of the orchestras and conservatories of Europe and North America then sported personnel who numbered among his students. He held the august position of Professor of Violin at the Leipzig Conservatory from 1883 on, and authored several important studies for that instrument, some of which are still used.
