Parisot is now probably in his late seventies. Last I heard he was going strong. His mother lived to be ninety-nine. Have you ever heard Carter Brey? This is a good example of the style of playing Parisot likes. The only things that Parisot really doesn't like are "sausages", which are created by the pulsation of the bow in order to increase contact with the string and thus resonance. Parisot also dislikes a wide vibrato that goes sharper than the pitch. This is deeply disconcerting to me as well and sounds like a strange warble. Sausages are disconcerting as well. Parisot likes a facile left hand and is able to teach movements that enable the student to play all works in the literature, regardless of how difficult. He is a master in this sense of the word. Musically, he does not create clones. You would learn from him, but you would need to study with theorists, historians and other chamber music professors in order to formulate your own way to play music. Not so bad, really. One thing is for sure, no
Parisot students ever confuse his identity with their own. DG
