It is impossible to imagine literature without left hand pizzicato (LHP), not because it is used so often, but rather on the contrary: because it is used comparatively seldom, mainly in romantic or contemporary literature. However, one important aspect is neglected: the consideration of what can be meaningfully connected to the LHP.
One important aspect is the development of important basics for instrumental technique. These include, for example:
- rhythms and
- rhythm stability on several levels,
- finger pressure,
- changing hand positions.
Practically combining these and other playing techniques with the left hand pizzicato for all playing levels is a current project. Published interim goals can be found below/on the left.
