comment What is the origin of the up bow and down bow symbols for bowed string instruments?
@kojiro: Very good idea - fortunately, Wikimedia Commons has an illustration showing frog and tip as well.

comment Looking for a 'Danse Macabre' baroque antecedent
@bmargulies: "same dissonance, same rhythm" - you mean the a-es, "the devil tuning its violin" (see here, third paragraph)? I think the using of the "tritonus" in baroque chamber music with violin and recorder would be quite rare. So if you're sure it was a augmented fourth maybe this fact would be a startign poitn for further search.
