Baroque Bow

Bowing Technique in different time periods?

So I have an essay about bowing technique of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic time periods. I have been searching for 2 weeks now for information on it and I still have nothing. I have to type up a 3 page essay that is due tomorrow and I need some links that tell me about the bowing techniques of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods. (This is for an orchestra class because I play the Violin and Piano)

All I can say is that, if you have been 'searching' for 2 weeks and found nothing, then you must have been wearing a blindfold. There is quite a lot of information about bowing techniques through the ages. However, you have to spend a bit of time researching it properly. I can only assume you didn't take the trouble to try or your search-engine technique is lousy. I found the articles for which I have placed links below within 5 minutes of looking - a lot less than 2 weeks! You should also get a copy of the book from the first of my links.

The Baroque bow was very different to the modern model, curving outwards instead of inwards as modern bows do. The shape of the tip and the frog were also very different and the tension on the hairs was far less (see pictures in the last link). This fundamental difference meant that playing techniques were also very different from today's. The player held the bow several inches along from the frog, offering a different stroke and balance.

The arched baroque bow lent itself well to double and triple stopping. This is why one sees so many examples of triple (and sometimes quadruple) stopping in Baroque music - with the Baroque bow it was possible to play three strings at once due to the low tension and arched shape of the bow - something which cannot be replicated with the modern concave bow.

Read the articles below and then research some more, using search phrases such as 'baroque bow techniques' in a search engine. I have no intention of bailing you out more than I have because you really could have found the information you needed if you have tried hard enough.

Good luck!
