About the third movement of the Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, Bron indicates firstly that the student should make more differences between piano and forte. Besides, he makes other corrections for specific moments such as being on time, play to the top of the bow, fingering improvement, etc.
Bron recommends her to prepare better her fingers: she needs more precision and more contact with the string to get a good sound. Afterwards, they address different issues related to vibrato, dynamics, advisable points to save the bow or phrasing, among others.
Zakhar Bron also points out the proper places to play with all the sound and finally, he mentions a certain passage where the student should not raise the fingers in order to maintain a better contact.
