Tacchi Fund Archive
The “Tacchi Fund” is an online archive which can be viewed by anyone visiting the ORT website. It contains the score of the first section of the First Violins which consists of about 150 scores taken from the repertoire of our Orchestra. And even more will be added.
Scanning these pages has preserved the executive marks and commands Andrea made and experimented with, rethought and corrected over a career of more than 35 years. These pages include bowings, ligatures and finger positions, and small musical markings which were given to all the other sections of the orchestra in order to uniform the execution of the bows and make no room for error or confusion.
The role of the first violinist is to mediate between the artistic desires of the conductor and the technical instruction for the orchestra all while keeping the original integrity of the text.
These scansions represent one possible interpretation and are simply a personal choice that reflects the culture, competence, and the ability of the instrumentalist. His personal preference and personality. That is why, in our case, preserving it and making it available to the public has a special significance.
