Violin Trio (Ernst, Heinrich Wilhelm)

Hi there. It appears that the first page of this manuscript calls for 3 separate violins (as it is a trio for violins). Why did you change it to "Solo Violin"? Was it originally scored as such (making this a composer's arrangement)? Thanks, Lndlewis10 19:30, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Actually, it is for solo violin. The composer's notation in the score is unusual. Sorry for the confusion, Lndlewis10 19:41, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi again. You can feel free to write your response on your user page. It will be easier to archive the conversation if it's all in one place. Sadly I can't fix this at the moment since it would involve deleting a redirect, which I don't have have the power to do. I'll pass it along, and hopefully it will be fixed soon. Thanks, Lndlewis10 20:25, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

It's fixed now :-) — P.davydov 21:23, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I apologize for contributing to the confusion- is the piece meant to be played in triple-stops all the way through, or something? Eric 10:42, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

No sweat. As the title suggests, this piece is a trio FOR ONE VIOLIN. The first two parts is played with bowed notes and the third with left-hand pizzicato. This was a technique used by Ernst in several compositions.

Thank you. Eric 10:49, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

It seems possible at least, but very diffucult. It would require a huge amount of hand strength :) Lndlewis10 17:44, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Erm... re Toccata Classics (yes, I realize you removed the comment) - I'm a fan of theirs and I say - good. Eric 20:48, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Quartetto for violin solo (Bull, Ole)

Yet another very interesting piece ;) Is this really supposed to be for solo violin? And also, just curious, where do you find these manuscripts? Cheers, Lndlewis10 21:58, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

In deed :) Yes, this piece is also for solo violin. This way of composing was used by Bull in various compositions. Bull was not the only one composing in this manner, and hopefully I will be able to upload more pieces of the same character in the future. I got this manuscript from a researcher of Bull in Bergen, Norway. With the help of various books, google and fellow musicologists and musicians, one stumbles upon and finds surprisingly much.

I have moved your response

to Category talk:Ernst, Heinrich Wilhelm which is its proper place- since it is not me specifically you want to talk to, but everyone concerned with improving that page - which is the use of a category talk page. Eric 20:40, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Im sorry, I don´t know the system of the communication here. I don´t quite know where to write in the proper place. How should I do to answer this more extensively, and in the right place?

I apologize for my tone. Hrm. There may not be an etiquette thing here since we use more.. or less... the same, I believe, guidelines as the site Wikipedia, which has its own guidelines of etiquette here... (I am not sure of this and should check- though that is a good guide to read anyway I believe... I need to ask what guidelines hold here, though.) Eric 21:08, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
