Sigh. I didn't think it would come to this.
After joining a quartet as a second violinist (they wouldn't let me be first even though I made first violin in region), the cellist has been pushing me around. Saying "Just quit orchestra; You suck at the violin; you can never be good" and generally demeaning things. He is seriously pissing me off and I might resort to violence if all else fails. He thinks he's the leader of the group even though he doesn't know what he's doing. He picked beginner pieces for our quartet for no reason. Note : I've never met this guy, though I think he's severely racist. He tries to join into my friends conversation and kick me out and then take me to a corner and physically pushes me. I was tempted to crack my school laptop on his head.
I might be able to just quit his quartet and get a dear friend of mine to play the Bach double concerto in d minor, all 3 movements.
It's a contest for solo and ensemble.
Assuming I can't just leave this quartet, any advice that you guys can give to me?
