9th Study
In the 9th Study, double strings are neither suerpositions nor additions. They really express a sensitiveness, a frailty, a balance and a harmony , which are fundamentally genuine. Our ears are sculptured by our hands, one must keep accurate and exacting.

Separate notes... changes of strings... Short ? Heel ?

11th Study
In the 11th Study, I have endeavoured to be inspired by violin bows in order to enhance sounds and the harmony without overdoing it. This implied bowings at once lighter, longer and alert, suggesting a moment of pleasure.

Thank you, Mr. Popper for your intelligence, your subtelty and your inspiration when you dealt with our instrument.
