I am a freshman in HS...and there is a concerto competition at our school. It is open to seniors and I have been wondering about it. I guess its better to worry about it earlier than later.
I need some suggestions on what should be some good Concertos. In the Past 2 years, violin winners have played Tchaiv., Vieuxtemps, and Beethoven. There are a total of about 6 winners and it is almost always guaranteed that at least 2 violins will probably play.
As I am finishing up Zigeunerweisen, I was wondering what i should play after this piece. i want to do a serious concerto...maybe Vieuxtemps No.5, or even Sibelius.
The senior Concerto Competition is in 4 years but i want to prepare for it now. Any suggestions on which concerto would be good to do?
Some concertos i was thinking of are:
Dvorak (i have self taught myself almost the whole 1st and 3rd movements)
Tchaivkosky (i have self taught myself almost the whole 1st movement)
What are your ideas??? And what did you guys play for your big "senior" concert or just your most important concert?
