20th century Piece

August 3, 2004 at 02:39 AM · Hi, I'm looking for ideas on what piece to play next. It has to be 20th century, about 4-5 minutes long. It can be anywhere between AMEB 7-A.Mus level

Other pieces I've done this year are the first two movements of Telemann Fantasia one, first movement of Haydn Violin concerto in G and am about to start on Legende. My teacher said that if I am doing well on legende after about 4 or 5 weeks I'll be able to start this contemporary piece or a show piece.

Any Ideas?

August 3, 2004 at 03:22 AM · How about Stravinsky's Chanson Russe?

August 3, 2004 at 04:05 AM · There are actually two Stravinsky Chansone Russe's :) Both are great! Or what about a movement of the Firebird arranged for violin and piano. If you want solo , the Eckhardt-Gramatte Caprices are wonderful!

The one I know is the one from the opera, about the parodic heroine singing about her unrequited love or something - I could always relate;) The time signature changes loads, but the piano's oom-cha accompaniment remains constant - it's great.
