I would like to look at the impact that vibrato, which is the domain of our left hand, has on our right hand, and how the two are connected via our brain.'

Sydney Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Andrew Haveron gives a masterclass on an audition excerpt from the first violin part of the first movement of Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances. Performing the excerpt is 2014 Sydney Symphony Orchestra violin fellow Nicholas Waters.

The clip is the first in a series of SSO masterclass videos on YouTube, including principal double bass Kees Boersma and principal viola Roger Benedict.
