Short Concerto To Play (Violin)
Hallo all. Recently I have gotten myself tangled into a Concerto Competition for my symphony orchestra. Of course, originally I had not intended to join, but we had a few miscommunications and now I'm in it. Now, it's a Concerto competition and I realized that most Concertos are wayy too long for me to memorize and complete in around 1 month or so. Is there any short Concertos that any of you guys know of that would be good for a competition, but yet short! Thanks all.
Need more information: what is the most recent concerto you learned, and how well could you play it? (in tempo, in tune, did you struggle with any part of the technique, etc) It's impossible to make suggestions without having any idea of your technical level and experience.
I would go with something that I have previously worked, cause 1 month or so would seem to me extremely stressful to go with something new.
Ah. The last concerto I've played was the Bach Concerto in E minor. I suppose that could've been a short enough Concerto to play again.
In that case perhaps the first movement of Kabalevsky. Wait a minute ... you've got a month to do this? I suggest you play what you already have then. Did you mean Bach E Major? Nice piece, but need to sparkle. Get busy polishing and make sure it's really smooth with the accompanist.
Do you need an entire concerto or just one movement?
Ok Thanks guys!
