Abstract [en]

In my master`s thesis project, I studied different ways to practise the Sibelius violin concerto to become a better violinist.The work describes my personal journey with the Sibelius violin concerto: how in one year, I studied to play the first movement of the concerto. Through this process and this project, I was able to see what my skills as a violinist are and what things I still need to develop. For the study, I got help from my colleagues, who are Finnish violinists, and I interviewed them. I was especially interested in their technical development during their studies so that I could connect the information to my own violin playing. I wanted to improve my technical skills to practise the Sibelius violinconcerto. Other things that I used to study the concerto were literature and recordings to get new ideas and support for my thinking. Also, music courses and master classes were important sources of information for this investigative work. After one year practising the concerto, my technical and musical skills became better. Preparing adifficult romantic concerto raised my level as a violinist. Through the videos I made aboutpractising the Sibelius violin concerto, it was possible to start to develop my performance skills. All the methods and literature I used gave me a more professional view of my violin playing and musicianship. After this research, I can start to work with my art now that I have so many usefultools for practising and performing.

 

In my master`s thesis project, I studied different ways to practise the Sibelius violin concerto to become a better violinist.

The work describes my personal journey with the Sibelius violin concerto: how in one year, I studied to play the first movement of the concerto. Through this process and this project, I was able to see what my skills as a violinist are and what things I still need to develop. For the study, I got help from my colleagues, who are Finnish violinists, and I interviewed them. I was especially interested in their technical development during their studies so that I could connect the information to my own violin playing. I wanted to improve my technical skills to practise the Sibelius violin concerto.

Other things that I used to study the concerto were literature and recordings to get new ideas and support for my thinking. Also, music courses and master classes were important sources of information for this investigative work.

After one year practising the concerto, my technical and musical skills became better. Preparing a difficult romantic concerto raised my level as a violinist. Through the videos I made about practising the Sibelius violin concerto, it was possible to start to develop my performance skills. All the methods and literature I used gave me a more professional view of my violin playing and musicianship. After this research, I can start to work with my art now that I have so many useful tools for practising and performing.
