Abstract

This research project focuses on the legacy of Veda Reynold’s violin pedagogy (1922-2000). She has been the teacher of many today virtuosos (e.g. Renaud Capuçon, Gilles Apap). Indeed, Veda Reynolds had a career as a soloist, chamber music and orchestra performer before teaching at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and later (1979-1989) and CNSMD of Lyon. Our working hypothesis is that there are both generic gestures (i.e. all violin teachers have in common) and specific gestures (i.e. created by Veda Reynolds and passed to her students who are currently teaching at various levels and in various contexts). Our methodological approach follows the methodology of simple and crossed self-confrontation interviews as developed by Oddone to question the genericity or the specificity of the gestures]. The first results would confirm the existence of a legacy of V. Reynolds' pedagogy among these students. In what form? This will be our discussion.
