Tittle: HOW CAN A CONTEMPORARY VIOLINIST APPROACH PERFOMRING IN DIFFERENT STYLES?
Research Question: what is the better way to approach performing different styles to be respectful with the composer and, at the same time, apply interesting ideas to our performance?
Summary of Results: we can still find great performances and performers that don't take care enough of basic elements of the score, over all in classical and baroque music and in contemporary music. In one hand, we should go more often to the sources, because as I explain in the research, it is the better way to have a good approach. The sources could come from books (classical, baroque and romantic music), or in the case of contemporary music by the composer itself, interviews or videos. At the same time, it will show that we have the responsability of being strict enough to don't make the same mistakes that we are use to listen to.
