Scottie Waldron performs Moto Perpetuo by Carl Bohm (aka Karl Bohm) with accompanist Irina Lande. This violin recording was recently restored from an old VHS tape. At the time of this recording, Scott Waldron Jr. was a student of Klara Berkovich. There are a few things to notice about this gifted violinist's performance. For a violinist, the bow arm is one's bread and butter. Scottie plays this piece with loose, flexible fingers. Klara Berkovich used to tell him that his fingers should be like cooked spaghetti. He has a nicely developed bow arm. Many children attempt to play this piece, but it looks like they are scouring a crusty kitchen stove with their bows. Before Scottie started working on this piece, his teacher gave him many finger and bow exercises. Klara Berkovich used to say that that the bow will start to bounce all by itself if the bow stroke is being done correctly. It's not something that can be forced. A good teacher will not skip the preparatory work necessary to play Moto Perpetuo well. Enjoy!
