I've just started looking at Vivaldi #3 in A minor - I'm mostly a pizz guy but have recently taken up the bow to improve intonation and become a bit more of an all-rounder. My question regards the dotted-quaver/semiquaver runs in the first movement - in my transcription each pair is slurred with a legato on the semiquaver. Should the bow stop slightly between the dotted-quaver and the semiquaver? - there is usually a position shift involved here and it sounds messy if I try and slur it in one smooth bow. Sorry if this is a no-brainer to most of you. I do have a lesson with a real teacher occasionally, I'm supposed to work on this ready for next time and I don't want to waste practice time because I got the wrong end of the stick (no pun intended).
