In this video, Prof. Fitzpatrick introduces the concept of "tonal palette" which is based on sound production and the elements of tone. For example: do you know that your violin sound can change according to where you place your bow on the strings?
These are the Gipsy Airs by Pablo de Sarasate, in the setting for violin and piano.
The violin part is original and hence rather difficult. The piano part is relatively easy.
Alltogether a good opportunity to exercise with this beautiful music.

This piece is slow and sweet, as well as fast and dynamic-very showy! To listen and learn from the world's best violinist, purchase "A La Carte" in which this piece is performed by Itzhak Perlman!
