I have a question for you all: who here thinks that working on pieces such as the Handel Sonatas or Mozart Concertos is a "easy/intermediate" level-kinda thing?
Because I have been redoing the Handel sonatas (which i LOVE to death) for a recording to send to some summer camps all the while performing the Beethoven Violin Concerto and learning the Brahms VC and somethign peculiar happened the other day:
i was practicing the handel sonatas in a practice room at my high school when my friend comes up to me and says, "why are you playing that? that's like suzuki 5..." and I don't remember what suzuki the sonatas are in, but I took that statement as a "oOo that's so easy" type of thing...
And now I am reluctant to record the handel sonatas because I don't want to show these programs and colleges that I only play "suzuki 5 level pieces" (of course, i have recorded the beethoven VC and sibelius VC)
Should i keep the handel Sonatas on my showcase portfolio or should i get rid of it? I'm so torn because i love those pieces, but if it makes me seem "intermediate-level", then I don't know if it's worth it
