  1. Den “Vorschlag” bei 2 minuten kann man doch aber nicht mit Suggestion
    übersetzen? oder ist das etwa der Fachausdruck. Ansonsten danke für die
    Mühe :)

  2. With enough practice, nothing is impossible but it’s not at all easy. One
    has to have absolute control over rhythm, intonation, and sound. What’s
    more important – left hand or bow arm? In violin playing, one cannot
    neglect ANYTHING. 

  3. I have only heard the German language via Hollywood films of Nazis in WWII,
    so excuse me if I mistake this innocent violinist with the gestapo.
