4th Finger pressure

Thinking about the tendency to press harder with the left hand fourth finger. Today I tried the opposite. Naturally the vibrato was better and a better sense of elan in both slow and passagework was present. Just because it is weaker does not necessarily dictate more downward pressure but perhaps less pressure from all the fingers.

CPE Bach

Have just been turned onto violin and harpsichord sonatas by CPE Bach. Rarely played but quite stunning. Hard to find music. Check out Schott, also a nice rendition on Youtube of the c minor.
