comment “crescendo” vs hair pin
I'm not aware of any difference in meaning. Typically, if one has a (de-)crescendo over many bars, hair pins are easier to stretch than the word. But here, where the same number of bars is concerned it looks arbitrary (if not inconsistent). Given that the first violins have the word and all other strings the hair pins excludes a relation to instrument type. - P.S.: Your graphic looks awful in the low resolution used.

comment Which version of Bach's Saint Matthew's Passion do we hear in Pasolini's Accattone?
I assume it is the Karl Richter recording with Münchener Bach-Chor & -Orchester, which according to the booklet dates from 1959 and so would fit into the timeframe of the movie. (Soloists are Haefliger, Engen, Seefried, ...) At least the slow tempi strongly support that assumption... Good luck!

comment Do capable harmony singers sing in just intonation or tempered tuning?
Tuning denotes a static property, which in my opinion does not apply to singing and fret-less string instruments (as long as no open strings are involved). One would typically deviate all the time, e.g. making major thirds a bit larger, leading-tones higher and so on. So I expect in the best case a probabilistic answer of limited value.

comment What is this trumpet attachment called?
I never heard of an attachment to the valves. The instrument looks like a plain-vanilla Flugelhorn with piston valves to me.

comment The manufacturing date the violin
@SmartyTwiti: Yes Shawn interpreted me correctly. It is no antiquity, its nowhere near its expected lifetime, and hey, it obviously didn't fall apart for quite some time (which new very cheap ones could do).

comment The manufacturing date the violin
In my opinion Anno leaves no room for interpretation. It could theoretically be the year of a major maintenance, but I doubt it. Anyway 34 years is a completely unremarkable age for a violin, I would recommend to focus on more interesting properties like sound, opinion of a violin player you trust.
