I may be given the opportunity to perform a (complete) violin concerto with our (good) community orchestra. Which one would be more 'fun', best to play? (more interactions rather than boring accompaniment, etc.)
I'm a 35+ non-professional only practicing a few hours a week, but with excellent technique, so I can learn the Beethoven or Mendelssohn 3rd Mvt in a few months (already know the 1st well). I can play/perform more difficult ones, but would need more practice than I can afford, so Brahms/Tchaikovsky are out. Beethoven has just been played so is vetoed by the Orchestra.
Anybody got the chance to play with orchestra?
Any suggestion, and why? Mendelssohn is a good candidate, I can also think of Khatchurian , Saint-Saëns 3rd, Dvorak, (Prokofiev?)
