Help Choosing Pieces

January 23, 2019, 2:26 PM · Hi. I just finished playing a piece and it’s time to start thinking about a next one. My teacher gave me two options: Lalo Symphonie Espagnole or Sarasate Inteoduction and Tarantella. I love them both but I can’t decide. I am a more musical player and I want a challenge. I’m going to use either of these pieces for an audition. Some pieces I have played are Mozart 4, bruch 1, Perpetuum Mobile by Novacek. I really need help!!
