Hi everybody !I need your help with suggestions.I have to quickly decide over a solo work for violin ,of a 20th century composer.I have decided to participate to a competition that will take place in 3months from now on( it will take place in March 2009 .) I just found out about it , and I know that the time is a bit short , but most of the repertoire required I already know.
Here are the other pieces I will play:
1.complete Sonata 1 by Bach in G minor
2.complete Sonata 2 in F minor by George Enescu
3.either the Mendelssohn , either the Paganini no 1 Concerto. (one of them is more musical , the other one more technical , I need to decide if I want to convince more through musicality , or through technique )
4.a Paganini Caprice ( it will probably be Caprice no.24)
5. here is where I need your help: 1 unaccompanied solo work by a 20th century composer. I really don't have too much clue....
Please, do you have suggestions for a work that is in the range of the other pieces I play? In the mean time , I don't want a work of the difficulty of a Paganini Caprice , because I will not have that much time to spend on it , to perfect it. It is a piece that I would have to squize in my schedule . I also need to decide pretty fast , to start working on it .
