Understanding the profound influence of cultural context on violin playing style is crucial because it helps broaden musical horizons and promote cultural exchange and understanding. This not only enriches the diversity of music but also emphasizes the uniqueness of different cultures. By exploring cultural factors, musicians can effectively convey the emotion and connotation of the music, enabling audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the story behind the music. In addition, an understanding of cultural context helps promote cross-cultural musical cooperation, create novel musical experiences, and foster the values of peace and cooperation. The purpose of this study is to explore the profound influence of cultural background on violin playing style. Through a comparative analysis of the musical performances of violinists from diverse cultural backgrounds, the research reveals that cultural factors significantly influence music art. By drawing on methods from diverse fields like music performance history, music theory, and cultural psychology, the study delves deeply into the impact of culture on violin playing technique, musical expression, and musical creativity. Finally, some suggestions on violin performance are put forward from the perspective of cross-cultural music research.
