Hello! The Kabalevsky Violin Concerto is one of my favorite pieces. I am excited to play it as my next concerto, and maybe use it for college auditions. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on the piece (ALL 3 Movements).
I also would like to know what exactly makes a student concerto a student piece. I've heard Vieuxtemps and Wieniawski concertos called student concertos, the same for Rode and Kabalevsky. I personally believe they are not student concertos. Is there a set point where they become "real" concertos? I feel that student concertos would be like the Rieding/Seitz, Accolay, and Haydn G Major.
Lastly, for college auditions, how does Mozart 3 go for a standard concerto?
