Hello! After many years away, I am playing DB again and practicing with a German bow once again. When I played before, there was no YouTube. I'm tempted to start a "videography" of sorts with a list of YouTube videos that contain excellent German bowing examples. By "excellent," I mean (in addition to skillful playing) a good clear video of the actual bowing technique. Here's an example
. The sound on this video isn't great, and it's not HD or anything. But there is a very clear video Prof. Rotaru's bowing. His YouTube channel is actually a nice place to look; many of the videos have very clear footage of his bowing technique (which is quite beautiful, don't you agree?).
And to be clear, I am not really looking for instructional videos. I would prefer to see as many excellent performers bowing real music. I also realize there's a huge limitation to just seeing the bowing on YouTube, and it's certainly no subsitute for instruction. But I'd be curious of TB members know of other online videos that meet this description.
If there's no good "linkography" or "YouTubeography" of such videos, I'd be interested in collaborating with someone on the task. If people have suggestions for inclusion, reply with them here. Could be a good resource. Who knows?
P.S. I'd be interested in finding videos of German bowing by performers who stand as well as sit. While this is an instructional video, here is good footage of Klaus Stoll
