In my violin propositions for 2010 I included "finding people to play with". Well, I found them. One is a colleague microbiologist cum pianist, and next Friday I'm going to play in a Haydn sonata with him; the other is a new "chamber symphony orchestra" (huh? what's that? we'll see). Auditions are Saturday morning, after the Haydn concert, and I've let my wonderful teacher talk me into playing a Mozart concerto (K 216). There are three orchestral excerpts to prepare, as well: from the Scherzo from Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream, from Mozart's 39th Symphony, and from Brahms' Second.
Wish me luck; I need it!
Edit: it's not a Chamber Symphony Orchestra, but a Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra. I have no idea what that is, either.
Good luck, aim for the moon and if you don't succeed to get there, you'll still fall in the stars! ; )
All the best for these events!
If you teacher thought you should play Mozart #3, then you must have done a fine job with this piece already. Good for you! Good luck with audition!
go bart! go cure them! :)
Good luck! This is not too much of a good thing, this is the right amount :)
Anne-Marie, Yixi, al, Karen,
thank you all very much for your words of encouragement. I'll keep them in mind during the concert and the audition, and I'm sure they will help.
