I need some help in obtaining orchestral excerpts for upcoming auditions. I'm finding it harder than I thought to find violin parts to the required repertoire. Do I have to buy the whole orchestral score? Can I obtain these parts at local schools/libraries? If you have any tips on where to get violin parts inexpensively, I would really appreciate your help. I've already been to the music library at USC, but they only had miniscores to the pieces that I need.
I'm also kinda curious as to which concerto would make the best impression on the audition panel. I'm currently working on the Brahms, but I also know the Mendelssohn and the Sibelius. Dying for some help, thanks.
