History & Features of Violin
It is the smallest member of the Violin family, which also includes Violin, Viola and Cello, and plays almost the highest tone. Kemanda There are 4 strings . The chord sounds are from low to treble and are in the form of sol, re, la and mi . The violin consists of 8 main parts. These parts are: the body, the upper part, the lower part, the black board, the black ebony part behind the bridge holding the wires, the sill, the snail and the keys. The length of the violin, which is difficult to make, is 60-62 centimeters . 38 centimeters of it is the trunk, and 25 centimeters is the stem. The body is hollow and made of thin wood. The bow of the violin is called Arse and it can be made of artificial or real horse hair or a material called Raw Line. The violin bow is 75 cm long. In addition, resin is applied to the Arşe to smooth the violin bow or to beautify the sound.
Although it is not known exactly where the violin was made for the first time , the most primitive form of bow, which has a great meaning for the development of music, is encountered in Asian societies, which first domesticated the horse and used the horse's tail hair to produce music . For this reason , we can say that the first ancestors of the violin, which is a string instrument, originated in Central Asia.
Rebab One of the most important ancestors of violin. It also helped the introduction and spread of string instruments in Europe during the Andalusian period. At the next stage in the formation of the violin we encounter the 3-string Vielle A'archet . They are the first instruments played on the shoulder. It was played by traveling saz poets in France, and its development and reach to the public were ensured. The first violin, similar to the one we know today , emerged in the Italian peninsula in the 1550s. Violin master Andrea Amati made the first Violin in 1555 . Violin development in Italy in the following centuries increased and continued in France, England , Germany , Russia and other countries. Although the violin preserved its original form, it underwent some changes in the 18th century. In the contemporary violin, the body and neck are longer and the bridge is higher.
It is not known exactly when the violin came to Turkey. It is known that the oldest examples of the violin have been found in cities such as Istanbul and Trabzon, which have close relations with the Latin countries. It is known that Makbul İbrahim Pasha, one of the grand viziers of Suleiman the Magnificent , played the violin. Before the violin, the only instrument in our music was the Rebab. The Viola d'Amore during the reign of Sultan Mahmud I was called Viola d'Amore , which is the Sine Violin, similar to the Turkish instrument used until recently . According to all sources until the Violin Corci, although those who played the old Turkish Violin , that is, the Sine Violin, were Turks, in the 18th century , or rather, after Corci, non-Turkish people eager to play the Western Violin._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ Since the seven-stringed Sine Keman's voice is somewhat muffled and resembles the Kemençe, it was preferred more by those who understand music. Until the beginning of the 19th century, the artists who played the violin used both types of violin. Later, the Cine Violin was forgotten. His last executives were Mustafa Sunar and Nuri Duyguer .
