As I was going through all my etude and flesch books, it suddenly dawned on me that I don't have a concerto to play! I just finished All State and my jury at prep and right now I have no concerto. I know now that I'm going to play Partita no. 2(w/ chaconne) by JS Bach and a Hindemidth Sonata, however I need a concerto because college auditions and concerto competitions are coming up, and I need a peice that will "wow" the judges. My teacher is suggesting I play Bruch Scottish Fantasy or the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor. Which one would you suggest? Also if there are any others peices in that difficulty range that are worth playing please TELL ME! (all accept Saint Seans)
My CONCERTO(not sonata, show peices etc.) repertoire is:
Viotti--no. 23, 22
ps. Just a side question- Is Bruch SF harder than no. 2?
