I found it!

November 16, 2006 at 1:06 PM

I found Stamitz. The one I was looking for: it was indeed Concerto No. 4 in D by Anton, not Karl.

Shar had it, and I decided it was worth the $18. However, it's not an audition piece for me, that's for sure. It's got parts that would be high even on the violin. I really like how the music switches to treble clef in viola for the high parts, though. I always hated passages in violin music that were written 5 and 6 lines above the staff, because I just couldn't read them. I always had to count notes. I need a teacher for this one.

Congratulations on finding it Karen. Noowwwww.....

Now you just have to learn it well enough so that you can record it for the rest of us to enjoy. :)

Yeah, tune in sometime in a year or two. Maybe!

It's a lot harder than the Telemann, and significantly harder than the Hoffmeister, too, I would say. But I still think it's something I could learn in this lifetime.
