First off, I would like to thank everyone for your responses on my last discussion post - I ended up winning the competition and had a lot of fun.
My question is: in about six months or so, could I hypothetically play the Sibelius Violin Concerto?
For reference, I've been playing around seven years. I've played the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, and the Mozart Concerti. Due to the Mendelssohn, I feel like I've got ocatves and double stops under my control. However, my technique with runs in general could use a little work.
My teacher basically just lets me play whatever piece I want, which is why I'm asking here.
EDIT: the repertoire is lacking, I know. The way my teacher does things with his more advanced students is this: he lets them pick one piece a year to work on for competition season, along with technique books like Dont and Mazas.
