I would like to know if anyone is aware of an earlier use of col legno bowing technique than Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique. Did Berlioz innovate this technique or are there earlier examples of it in the repertoire? Can anyone point to other composers who innovated new bowing techniques, for example Bartok's pizzicato snapping techniques in his 4th String Quartet? Thanks
