I am not working on this piece right now, nor do I plan to anytime soon, but I just listened to it for the first time in a recording. Is it normal to not really like it? I don't know why, it kind of just sounds to me like a lot of scales and octaves, and the melody is kind of dry and has the style of Mozart but not the charm. The orchestral part almost sounds more beautiful to me than the solo. Also, the third movement, to me, sounds way better than the rest of the piece. It's like boring, boring, then boom something interesting. Just overall, really unbalanced. Do I just have poor taste? The version I listened to was Heifetz.
