Pieces to Play After Accolay 1 and Mozart 3?

October 29, 2017, 3:23 PM · I'm struggling to decide with my private teacher on what violin solos to start playing after the completion of the Accolay no. 1 in A minor and the Mozart 3 in G Major. Any suggestions?

October 30, 2017, 1:46 AM · Severn - Polish Dance
Ten Have - Allegro Brillante
Monti - Czardas
Haydn - G Major
Beethoven - Romance Op. 50
Sarasate - Malaguena
Kreisler - Sicilienne and Rigaudon

I actually skipped around Kabalevsky in C and never got to really finish it when I switched teachers because she could see the loss of interest in my eyes due to playing the piece for too long--you can also try for Bruch in g or read through some second movements like Wieniawski or Bruch, which is what I did.

Also, if you haven't done Meditation from Thais yet you should also do that after Bach.
