"Should be" essential violin pieces
What are some great violin pieces that deserve more attention? I'm looking for stuff to put on my bucket list for the future...
"Le Boeuf sur le toit" by Milhaud
Roland Herrera of Westbury Park Strings has compiled a comprehensive repertoire list upt to abrsm grade 8. His old website, a real treasure trove, has been down for a while, but the list is accessible at his new website (with essential repertoire marked as "key pieces"). Lots of great stuff there!
Spohr Concerti (#8 has been almost forgotten, and it still is a great work.)
Several of the concertos by the Chevalier de St.-Georges should be heard more often -- they're up there with Mozart.
I think DeBeriot #7 is very overlooked as a student work.
Andrew how hard is that Maier sonata?
I've never played it. I switched to viola when I was still a beginner and never played violin regularly again. I would assume it's similar to the Brahms sonatas. It's on IMSLP and there are recordings on YouTube.
Scales and Arpeggios ... seems to be ignored quite frequently.
Vivaldi La tempesta di Mare concerto
