Simon Fischer is a London-based violinist and pedagogue. The video below is excerpted from his DVD The Secrets of Tone Production: On All Bowed String Instruments. The bow pressure exercise he demonstrates towards the end of the video was built on the original bow pressure exercises in Leopold Mozart’s A Treatise.
Dr. Cheri Collins contacted Professor Fischer and received his permission to reproduce the edited video on String Visions only. The video is featured in Dr. Collins’ article “Bow Pressure Techniques.”
It is fantastic to able to share Simon Fischer’s ideas here. Enjoy!
