OK, question here. I'm working this one out OK, but I'm confused with the annotation in measure 7, or is that bar 7? It also repeats on measure 15 and 23.
Two notes slurred or more precisely tied, but an down bow and then an up bow articulation
(This is from the sheet music Violaman posted in the Sheet Music section of this website)
From Across the hall:
Great question. Holding the 6 beats in one bow direction in a slow tempo is not easy. I made the notation easier by placing an up bow for you to get more bow. The reason I don't put the up bow on the next measure is that one should not make the up bow audible. You should try to hide the bow change and place it either a bit earlier or late of half the duration.
Also, this allows you to continue the piece on a down bow as it should be.
More commonly, in notation, a composer will write a down and up bow right next to each other to indicate that you change when you want, in some cases to show that you should not change at the same time as your stand partner in order to camouflage the sound of the change.
