Saturday Strings

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Mr. Isaac Stern

Performing The Introduction and Rondo
Capriccioso by Camille Saint-Saens

I love the ricochet bowing in this piece (the quick, almost unnoticed vertical movement of the bow for very distinct short staccato notes). The sudden changes in mood are typical in Saint-Saens violin works.
