Vibrato in the Romantic Era

Currently I am writing my second article for the Codarts 'Rough Guide Informed Performance' on vibrato. The first article (2014) contained an overview of the use of vibrato in historical perspective for all periods of time and all instruments. This time (2016) Codarts (Rotterdam Conservatory) asked me to write more specifically on the use of vibrato by string players during the Romantic period, as the 'Rough Guide, vol.2' in which it will be published will focus on the Romantic time.

While working on this article, I am sharing my research in this blog. There is a lot of fascinating material, in books, treatises and on recordings.

Have fun, and happy to hear your comments / suggestions!
