Abstract:
In this document I fuse a study of performance technique and pedagogy, introducing Hindustani violin technique through the lens of a performer trained in western violin practice. While a large body of research on Hindustani music theory, history, and the performance of other instruments currently exists, very little has been written about the Hindustani violin. Aside from a few short interviews with prominent Hindustani violinists, nothing has been published on technique, performance practice or pedagogy. My research involves a comparative analysis of Hindustani and Western violin techniques, enhanced by data from my violin performance and pedagogy lessons with Hindustani performer/teacher Kala Ramnath. The research includes documentation of the history of the violin's regional predecessors such as the sarangi, it's introduction to India, and the first compilation of Hindustani violin techniques and exercises, for basic sliding, shifting and improvisation. Knowledge of the Hindustani violin performance tradition offers Western musicians new perspectives on creative violin approaches, and enhances their ability to perform with greater flexibility and virtuosity.
