A historical and practical tutor for the Viola da Gamba bow technique by the Viola da Gamba Class of Mozarteum University Salzburg and Prof. dr. Vittorio Ghielmi
Supported by the Violanet European Project
This video provides a practical and theoretical approach towards techniques of «jumping» and «rebounding» bow strokes for the Viola da Gamba.
The students of the Mozarteum University Salzburg, with the guidance of Professor Vittorio Ghielmi, introduce to you the ancient texts describing the flying bowstrokes with Viola da gamba grip.
The steps to the mastery of this technique are presented in a practical tutorial at the end of this video (from the 10’38” mark).
