Here's the thing: I absolutely hate Mozart.
Okay, that's probably putting it much too strongly. I can appreciate and enjoy Mozart, but I get sick of the predictability quite quickly.
I expressed my feelings to my first teacher, and she never made me touch Mozart, but now that I have progressed in my studies, I am starting to see gaps in my repertoire.
I have recently picked up the second partita and Bruch Concerto, and now I'm thinking: maybe Mozart needs to be a part of my repertoire.
There must be something unique you can learn from playing his concerti that it is regarded so highly among teachers and treated with such sternness, so my question is this:
What can you learn from Mozart Concerti?
Would you recommend that I study them, looking past my dislike toward it?
