Next Piece

October 7, 2018, 2:32 PM · Hi all! I recently finished playing the bruch concerto and my teacher gave me a few options for my next piece. I have the choice of saint saens 3 and wieniawski 2. Which one? I am concerned because I am a high school student with a lot of work and I am afraid I won’t have enough time to prepare for my recital in January. If you have other piece suggestions, let me know! Thanks!

October 8, 2018, 9:25 AM · Maybe the Wieniawski Scherzo-Tarantelle or the A-major Polonaise Brilliante?

Or a Sarasate work? Maybe the Introduction & Tarantella?
