My All-State Audition piece is Mozart Violin Concerto #4 in D major. It is giving me a major headache right now. I can play all the notes, but it is soo hard to get everything in tune and get everything clean and coordinated...
For example, I can never get the slurred sixteenth notes on measure 48 in tune and in exact rythmn. I can never get the scalar passage in measure 52 all coordinated and in tune also. I can't get the passage in measure 74 in tune or clean, and the longer passage that starts on measure 126 is never in tune or coordinated.
I tried to practice each of these many spots slowly and could get the intonation in tune, but I cannot get it right if I play in real tempo?
Is the Mozart #4 really this hard for everyone? It's so much harder than last year's audition piece, the Viotti concerto 23... Does anyone have any tips on any of these parts? (and in general)
