Carl Fischer Music Releases Eric Rosenblith’s “Ah, You Play the Violin…”:
Thoughts Along the Path to Musical Artistry
New York, NY — Violin pedagogue Eric Rosenblith, student of both Jacques Thibaud and Carl Flesch and former chairman of the New England Conservatory’s string department, has shared his lifelong knowledge in a new text from Carl Fischer Music: “Ah, You Play the Violin…”: Thoughts Along the Path to Musical Artistry (BF59 - $24.95) Rosenblith’s book is a logical progression through the intricacies of violin technique and playing and a concise discussion of issues related to “a young musician’s journey from the early stages of study to full professionalism and artistry.” In itself, the text is a journey, a carefully organized map whose pages will thoughtfully guide the reader through topics related to the left arm, the functioning of the right arm, and posture. The intricacies of establishing a methodical and effective practice routine, free of distractions and of any adverse habits, are addressed as well. Though focusing primarily on violin playing, Rosenblith’s book also offers sound judgment for all musicians. His concluding comments urge all musicians to strive for as “global a technique as possible,” and his closing thought, “We truly need to be thinkers, poets, painters, engineer and philosophers,” neatly summarizes the book’s fundamental thesis.
