 The Baroque German Violin Bow: A Lost Art
These two musical styles were reflected in the violin bows.
Bach’s solo violin sonatas and partitas would benefit particularly from the use of a proper German bow, especially in the wonderful chaconne from the Partita 2 in d-minor BWV 1004, where the alternation between single-line melody and chordal harmony is such an important feature of the musical structure.
But look closely at the baroque lady playing the violin in our headline illustration - the bow is convex-arched well away from the bow strings, and her thumb is placed under the bow strings.

In the repertoire of a violin soloist the most important musical forms are the concerto with orchestra and the sonata for violin and piano.
Beethoven, a transitional figure between the Classical and Romantic styles, standardized the sonata for violin and piano as a composition in three or four movements in which the two performers are more or less equal collaborators.
In a sonata with piano the violinist is more exposed, and while he or she does not have to compete with a whole orchestra for the attention of the audience, the violinist carries a greater interpretive responsibility.

He had perfect pitch, could improvise in all kinds of musical styles, taught himself to play the violin, and could compose without needing to write down a note.
His music — hundreds of individual pieces for every instrument or musical group imaginable — is frequently used today in television shows and advertisements, thus always remaining in the forefront of the minds of people who otherwise wouldn't listen to classical music.

Banya's guitar work takes the originally mellow composition a few notches above the typical variety though, and adds in some nice intense rhymed singing to go with it, delivering a tale of romantic obsession that might even be called inspirational.

Having used the Rhythmicon in several compositions Cowell became more interested in ethnic musical styles and the instrument was placed in storage.

 The Maccann Duet Concertina: A Personal Guide and Reference Library
Maccann Duet concertinas combine many of the advantages from both of two earlier types (called “English concertinas” and “Anglo concertinas”) and can be played in the style of either of those as well as in many additional musical styles, either by ear or from music notation.
Despite the fact that the earliest “English” concertinas were intended to play only a single musical part, much like a violin, they were very popular in parlour ensembles and became something of a fashionable craze in the mid-1850s.
Concertinas are small and light (but loud) bellows-powered free-reed acoustic musical instruments invented by the English physicist Sir Charles Wheatstone about 1830 as a high-tech innovation in musical-instrument design.
