Boise State Department of Music Department Chair and Professor of Viola Linda Kline recently presented at the Tartini Symposium in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. An invited guest speaker, Kline discussed discrepancies in multiple editions of Tartini’s composition “The Art of Bowing” since the 18th century. Kline also performed demonstrations of Tartini’s important pedagogies on bow technique, many of which have been overlooked in editions post-19th century.
Sponsored by The Wirth Institute at the University of Alberta, in partnership with the Slovenian Embassy and the Department of Music, the Tartini Symposium centers around the celebrated violinist, pedagogue and theoretician Giuseppe Tartini.
