  Examples of notated violin folk music  David Bruce at 22:57 on 25 October 2004
 

Does anyone know any good examples of notating violin folk music?

I don't mean just the melodies but the various embellishments and ornaments, particularly those found in Eastern European folk + gypsy music? Or any pieces that use these kind of effects a lot.

The one example of the latter I have found is Berio's Voci for viola, which has some great examples. Anyone have any suggestions for anything more?

Hi David
I just came across this book published by Schott which is Indian Melodies for violin - not Eastern European but it does deal with 'folk' techniques for Western players.
Hope that helps.
John
