Can Someone Order These Violin Pieces?
Bruch No. 1, Phillip Glass No. 1, Accolay A Minor, Bach E Major, Mendelssohn E Minor, Sibelius D Minor, Meditation From Thais, and Mozart G Major.
Thank you so much!
Ordering in levels is very personal and something I generally have trouble doing. With my knowledge of these pieces, I can order some of them, but not all. From least difficult to most,
Playing Mozart well is as tricky as any of the harder ones. Of course, playing those well instead of just hacking through them is also tricky=)
Accolay seems completely out of its league.
Mozart G Major is harder than Accolay but that's partly because the standard interpretation of the Accolay is to make it sound as trite and cheesy as possible, which is much easier to acheive than the grace and elegance that Mozart demands. Also I think there is a general expectation that the Accolay will be played half the notes out of tune.
I ordered them on the difficulty they would pose to my techniques and style. I would change it around completely if I played differently. They are in two big clumps to me, the advanced and the professional. I would only put them into those two. Once you start to attempt to play them well, as such with Mozart, they all change.

My order from hard to easy would be:
I think this is a more traditional sequence, from easy to hard:
