|Let's work out on this passage in different steps:
First of all:
Keep the ultimate goal in mind: the passage must sound light,
fluent, pearly, brilliant.
These practice methods are purposely more difficult,
to make the actual passage seem much easier in the end.
Step 1 (DOUBLE) DOTTED NOTES
IMPORTANT: Really exaggerate the quickness of the dotted
rhythm and land on the arrival note with elasticity. Stay with
the bowings. Practice the entire passage 3 times in each pattern.
Step 24-NOTE GROUPS
IMPORTANT:Exaggerate the quickness of the fast notes and
land on the arrival notes with elasticity. Follow the bowings
Practice the entire passage 3 times in each rhythm pattern
HINT: Let your eye look ahead to the nextnote.
Step 3 ADD & DROP GROUPS
NOTE::Practice in tempo (suggest
Exaggerate crescendi, then pull bow on accented notes.
Practice each line 4 times.
Step 4Now try the passage with slight control accents on each
group of l6th notes. You should be sailing along now!
