This study presents a historical and stylistic approach to issues of bowing and style in three major violin concertos from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The works to be analyzed are: Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 4 in D major, K.218 (representing the Early Classical repertoire), Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D major, Op.61 (Late Classical/Early Romantic), and Brahms’s Violin Concerto in D major, Op.77 (Romantic). The commentaries on the interpretation of these works will be based on information of bow types and bow strokes from different historical periods in relation to basic principles of present-day pedagogy for sound production.
