So I'm fortunate enough to be traveling as concert master of my school orchestra going to Italy. I and 3 others, was asked to solo the "vivaldi quad. concerto". We sound great at it, but I find it akward standing with nothing to do for 10-15measures of rest. What should I do to 1. not look bored/awkward 2. still have the look that I'm into the piece, and not counting rests
Put instrument down? keep it on my shoulder? look out at the audience?look at the music? look at the other soloists/orchestra? look into space?
This can be good for others in the same problem (Beethoven concerto introduction/ stamitz concerto with a billion rests at beginning) Thanks!
