My teacher wants me to learn the fifth concerto by Vieuxtemps (A minor). I mentioned this to a couple of my fellow students and I received disparaging smirks and was informed that it is apparently a "student concerto". Personally, I consider it a great honor to be given a new piece to learn, but I have to admit that I am dismayed at the lack of appreciation for our dear friend Vieuxtemps and his concerto. What do you all feel about it?
