His well-known lied, Estrellita, has grown extremely popular that most audiences consider it a national folk song. Renowned violinist, Jascha Heifetz, arranged the song for violin and piano for a film in the United States.
To achieve the imitation of the voice the performer has to have a warm vibrato, appropriate fingerings, and bowings that reflect good phrasing. These variables will determine how closely the violin can imitate the human voice, as this piece is originally a lied. The high register of the violin is used in distinctive occasions to express the agony of unrequited love.
There are various exercises for vibrato and many options for shifts and bowings to better mimic the human voice and express the text of the lied. The execution of tone production and resonance requires various elements in the bow arm to work appropriately together. The many arrangements and interpretations of this piece will leave more room for the performer to achieve a unique interpretation.
The interpretation itself will be subjective as only an audience can determine if the performer can execute and capture the essence of the original arrangement. In addition, the historical study of Manuel Ponce and his revival of Mexican folk music will also help. Furthermore, a performance analysis of Jascha Heifetz, Joshua Bell, and Itzhak Perlman will result in a suggested performance guide with pedagogical recommendation.
