I'm beginning to study the Beethoven violin concerto, it's almost like a sacred piece, to be approached with reverence. Anyone have any hints, suggestions and comments on how to start? How easy is it to memorize, given all the sequences. Is it a fun concerto to play or a lot of work? I just finished Mendelssohn and that is quite fun and light-hearted. Beethoven is interpreted more seriously and harder work?
