Hello everyone. I am a sophomore in high school and positive I want to do music in college at the conservatory level. One problem: I love both the violin and the viola and cannot decide which one I want to give up and which one I want to commit to for life. I just played Haydn's C Major violin concerto for a state contest, and am really looking forward to doing a little Mozart and then getting into some of the romantic concertos. This being said, I absolutley fell in love with the viola last summer at Interlochen. I really like the whole harmony aspect of music. The only thing scaring me away from the viola is the repertoire. Do violists get the same juicy romantic literature that violinists get?
If anyone has been in this situation and relates to my dilema, I would deeply appreciate some guidance/advice of any kind.
Thanks a lot!
