My teacher wants me to do a couple of short lyrical pieces to work on vibrato and tone production (specifically the production of a more soloistic, rich, dense tone).
He wants them to be pieces that don't present any technical difficulties -- so there are zero distractions from anything other than sound. His suggestions were the Kreisler/Mendelssohn Song Without Words, and the Kreisler/Rimsky-Korsakov Hymn to the Sun, but more/others would be good, too.
I was pondering:
- Shostakovich: Romance from the Gadfly
- Tchaikovsky: Serenade Melancolique
- Williams: Three Pieces from Schindler's List
- Achron: Hebrew Melody
- Kreisler/Rimsky-Korsakov: Chanson Arabe
Any suggestions, or thoughts on the above?
