The amazing adventures of my repetoire

November 8, 2010 at 2:15 PM

Yesterday me and my teacher were discussing my repetoire for the upcoming term as I have an  test next May that equals ABRSM grade 8 and ASTA grade 8/9. It´s was fun discussing the upcoming repetoire and I am feeling quite excited about my upcoming violin term.

As a Baroque piece I´ll play the Gigue from Partita no. 2. I know that Gigue reasonably well by now so I´ll spend next term perfecting it. I´ll also play some other pieces from Bach´s solo violin repetoire to get to know it better. I love Bach so I´m looking forward to diving headlong into his music :)

As a Romantic piece I´ll play the infamous De Bériot violin concerto no. 9. It´s definetly one of the most played student concertos there is but I really like it. I think it has a unique sound and it presents ton of fun technical challenges so I´m looking forward to studying it.

We´re still figuring out the classical piece but it´ll be either Mozart violin sonata in g major or in e minor. Whatever piece it´ll be at last I´ll get to play some Mozart (I haven´t played a Mozart piece in years)

And I´ll be playing the infamous Rode etude No 2. I love that etude. It´s such fun to play and is exactly the kind of etude I like. Fast, challenging and has a unique sound.

I am really looking forward to my next violin term and I feel sure it´ll be both challenging and rewarding and with new discoveries along the way.

I´m off to butchering De Bériot :)
