What after Accolay?
I am just about to perform Accolay 1 in a recital and I wants some suggestions what to play next. I can play Accolay very good and I learned it in about 2 months. Any suggestions?
Have you asked your instructor?
Haydn G Major often comes after Accolay.
Meditation seems appropriate. Ask your teacher for a list of suggestions and pick your fave. Even uncommon pieces at your level are appropriate.
I think a few pieces I worked on shortly after Accolay were Beethoven Spring Sonata, Beethoven Romance in F, Tartini Didone Abbandonata (which has TONS of lyrical studies and I still love it), Haydn in G, Csardas, and The Boy Paganini, NOT in this particular order.
I don't think all teachers have a specific repertoire curriculum, though there's pieces that nearly everyone learns.
@Ella Yes, that’s really what I meant. I know Kabalevsky Improvvisato Irato is one of those niche pieces my teacher taught me none of the faculty at a local college knew, but I also know most people will have played Haydn in G and Kabalevsky in C and the Mozarts before jumping into bigger romantic stuff like Bruch and Wieniawski. I assume most of what is taught during the Suzuki years-preBruch is pretty similar, though, based on conversations I’ve had with my music major friends.
There's quite a lot of intermediate repertoire, and while some of it is very common, there's quite a bit of variance between teachers on which particular works they teach or don't teach.
Cassio...Do you know the Deutche number for that sonatina?
Viotti 23 is a LOT harder than Accolay or Haydn G Major.
@Bill Barber It's the one in D major, D.384. I ended up buying the book with all three sonatinas, though. Opus 137.
I think some teachers are willing to climb out of their shells and explore new repertoire they've never played or taught before. At least that's what my teacher's like.
Viotti 23 is not much harder than Accolay, if at all. Perhaps Paul is thinking of Viotti 22, which is more difficult.
I think Csárdás would be good. It has a good variety of techniques in there and is always fun to play.
