Question for Drew

October 27, 2009 19:26

Hello Drew,

Having received the programs of your fall student recitals, let me first of all congratulate you on the high level of accomplishment that your students, in large numbers, have achieved.

I notice that once again you have several students who performed the Haydn G Major Concerto. Obviously you find this a valuable teaching piece. In my own experience I have not found it to be of great value for my students, although I have taught it many times since it is often a required audition piece-- so I am wondering if you could help me gain some understanding.

Which technical or stylistic issues do you find the Haydn Concerto addresses for your students?

Which repertoire would the Haydn Concerto normally follow? And which repertoire would come next?

If any other teachers would like to contribute their insights that would also be most welcome.

Best wishes.
