After Dvorak and Accolay?

January 31, 2018, 11:21 AM · I'm currently working on the Accolay A minor violin concerto and the Dvorak Romance in F minor. Any tips on what pieces I should play after learning that?

January 31, 2018, 12:13 PM · What does your teacher think?
January 31, 2018, 2:33 PM · I agree with Katie, that's a very strange combination.

Regarding what to play next, that's really a question for your teacher. I often teach DeBeriot #9 immediately after Accolay.

Edited: January 31, 2018, 8:18 PM · Some students may even skip Accolay and Deberiot 9 completely. That was the case with me, but many of her other students have learned at least one of them. Now I've reached a level where I'm elegible for Bruch concerto according to my teacher, though I haven't learned it yet. The repertoire each student learns depends on teacher suggestions and how much freedom teachers give in selecting repertoire. My teacher, for instance, will suggest some appropriate pieces and lets me pick my favourite ones.

February 1, 2018, 10:42 AM · I don't know these pieces, but there's so many great gems not taught to students anymore. I wish we could revive great and unknown music more often.
February 1, 2018, 2:20 PM · I never played Accolay, but I did play DeBeriot 9, on my long, dull slog through intermediate repertoire. I learned a Rode concerto, too. I didn't like it. (My current teacher does teach a Kreutzer concerto to some of his student.)

I think those pieces fall under the banner of "bearable instructional music", mostly.

The movement I played was pleasant but not very interesting. It was actually the most interesting of all of the Kreutzer concertos I was looking at.

February 1, 2018, 6:41 PM · This sounds round about grade 7. How about Tchaikovsky Canzonetta, John Williams Remembrances, Telemann Fantasies (no 9j, Chanson Russe Stravinsky, Thais Meditation, Monte Czardas
