Hi,

There is an articulation that I can't fully understand. It is called "Performance détaché" (VI_perf-detache), and what it does is to play a first note long (looped), the subsequent ones legato, and a last one, if kept held, short and unlooped.

What's the different with a legato articulation? When is this intended to be used? It is included among the "shorts", but it seems more a legato with a short ending note. And it is very similar to the unlooped perf-legato.

HI, 

It is meant for playing connected detaché lines... compare it with the regular legato with some musical figures. 

Best, 
Paul

Paul, thank you for the explanation. The difference is subtle, but it is there.

Not being a violinist, I'm just trying to get my head around the seemingly paradoxical, "connected detaché lines..."

Music is that paradox, where you can have a line and a curve coexist in the same plane…

The 'connected' in 'connected detaché' means you're maintaining string contact with the bow until the phrase ends, and the performance articulation indicates that end.
