Continuing Yesterday’s Quote

“The art of playing the violin consists in giving that instrument a tone that shall in a manner rival the most perfect human voice; and in executing every piece with exactness, propriety, and delicacy of expression according to the true intention of music.”

~Francesco Geminiani, “The Art of Playing on the Violin”, London, 1751
