Monti Czardas

Mollenhauer Boy Paganini (maybe, be careful with this one)

Bach a minor concerto

Maybe Kreisler Sicilienne and Rigaudon

There is also Viotti #23

September 3, 2016 at 05:06 PM · DeBeriot #9

September 3, 2016 at 08:16 PM · Search previous threads for anything that mentions DeBeriot or Accolay. Essentially all the same question.

Solidly intermediate-level repertoire.

September 3, 2016 at 11:06 PM · Thank you all, great suggestions.

September 4, 2016 at 09:29 PM · For the pros here: what do you think of Kurt Sassmannshaus graded repertoire? He has the Rode etudes graded as much more difficult than the suggestions here (a 7 vs the 4-5 of the concertos suggested above).

September 4, 2016 at 10:00 PM · The Rode etudes (assuming we're talking about the 24 caprices) are more difficult than the commonly-played Rode A minor concerto.
