German to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary / music term
German term or phrase:Strich (music term)
This is a music term. I would like to know its English equivalent.
"Strich" is a method of playing a musical instrument in terms of expressiveness. Main types of "Strich"'s were initially established for string instruments. "Strich" is based on special manner of a bow movement. Main "Strich"'s: legato, detache, staccato, spiccado.
Explanation: I agreed to wiemeyer´s "bowing" above, and I stand by this if it is referring to bowed instruments. But for the more general application, where for example it refers to flute parts, or even keyboard, you obviously can´t use this.
