Pieces to Play After Accolay 1 and Mozart 3?
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?
If you haven't already played Bach #1 in a minor, you should learn that. I also usually teach DeBeriot #9 and/or Kabalevsky at about this level; I do not usually teach Mozart G until later.
Ask your teacher for a list of suggestions, listen to them all and pick your faves.
I agree with Mary Ellen. In fact, there is a significant musical/technical gap between Accolay and Mozart G Major. In addition to Bach A minor and DeBeriot #9 already suggested, one of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi may be worthy of consideration.
Also, there's tons and tons of other pieces you can learn.

Kabalevsky in C, Haydn in G, and Bach in a would all be helpful. 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.
If you haven't done Bach in A Minor, you should do that next. Everyone needs to learn that one (and it's great music too, especially the second movement).
The last movement of the Bach Double is quite fun!
