Masterclass
with Yury Gezentsvey

When learning a new piece, it can be a challenge to know which fingers to use and in which order, particularly when you have to play a melody over multiple strings. In this video, NZSO Principal First Violin Yury Gezentsvey discusses alternative fingerings on the violin. 

 Yury’s favourite trick is to take any given passage from the solo violin repertoire and explore the endless possibilities of left-hand fingering to resolve obstacles in voicing and phrase continuity.
