Versuch über die wahre Art Violine zu spielen (German by Adela Misonova

| February 24, 2017 | admin | 0

By Adela Misonova

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, word: 1,0, Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Seit der Komposition der Sonaten und Partiten für Violine solo lassen sich beinahe three hundred Jahre zählen. Das Werk weist außer den hohen künstlerischen Qualitäten auch praktischmethodische Inhalte vor. Als solches brachte es in der Geschichte einige Kontroversen hervor und wurde zum Thema in mehreren theoretischen und wissenschaftlichen Analysen und Diskussionen. Heutzutage ist das Werk aus dem Konzertleben nicht mehr wegzudenken.
Wegen seiner hohen geigerischen Ansprüche wird es aber auch als Bestandteil verschiedener Prüfungen, Probespiele und Violin-Wettbewerbe genutzt. Leider setzen sich viele Studenten mit der Komposition nur in diesem Zusammenhang auseinander.
Es ist nicht direkt nachzuweisen, warum Johann Sebastian seinen großen Violinzyklus schrieb. Es wurde von ihm kein Vorwort, keine „Gebrauchsanweisung" hinterlassen. Wenn guy Bachs Persönlichkeit so betrachtet, wie sie viele seiner Zeitgenossen beschrieben, erscheint die Theorie einer autodidaktischen Schaffensarbeit als sehr wahrscheinlich.
In den ersten Kapiteln meiner Arbeit versuche ich Bachs Leben bis hin zur Köthener Zeit zu schildern. Daraus ergibt sich, dass Bach in den Lehrjahren ein scharfsinniger Schüler und später ein fleißiger Autodidakt conflict. Es ist additionally denkbar, dass Bach seine Sonaten und Partiten schrieb, um damit die geschmackvolle Umsetzung des Kontrapunkts auf einem Melodieinstrument auszuloten.
Was ist das Besondere an diesem Werk? Warum sind die Violinisten der vielen zurück greifenden Generationen begierig das Werk immer wieder zur Aufführung zu bringen? Mit den Sonaten und Partiten übergibt Bach jedem Geiger ein Werk von überzeugender Geschlossenheit, dessen Aufführung eine technische Voraussetzung auf professionellem Niveau erfordert. Ebenso wichtig ist aber auch eine gründliche musiktheoretische und musikgeschichtliche Grundlage zu
