For Baroque music to get airborne, the line must soar. The bow is like the breath of a singer. To quote Donington: "Phrases generally go to a peak note, which is often though not always the highest note, and then relax to a note given away at the end. There is the unit; that much, and no less nor more, is the phrase; and it is for our own musicianship to recognize the fact. Nothing in the notation and nothing in the historical evidence, is going to show us the pattern of our own musicianship does not." To achieve this, the modern violinist (with modern instrument) would have to slow down the bow, use less of it, and play into the string with the hair a little flatter and near the bridge. Why are Baroque instruments always so expensive Because modern violinmakers no longer makes baroque instruments actively, those who do make them charges a high premium for it. Those customers whom I have spoken with actively will know I've spent over 1 year searching to make an accurate copy of baroque instruments. After much experimentation. I'm happy to say our currency copy is a rather accurate one.
