If anyone knows the techicalities of this piece (Grade 8 violin 2012) I need some help!
At the beginning, is the the first note (tenuto D), meant to be played as an open string or as second finger on g string? On the g I find it hard to shift smoothly, but wonder if vibrato is needed for the style. When this note returns to start the phrase again, it is slurred to a d (I'm in 3rd at this point). I think that indicates it should be open because otherwise there would be a really awkward string crossing. Also on the CD recording it sounds like an open all three times the note is played in the intro section.
Hope this makes sense! Please help.
Edit: Sorry, spelt 'Schindler's' wrong in title but can't edit it out...
