Mozart 4,5 or Saint-Saëns 3?
For my next concert I dont know which one to play.
Mozart 4, Mozart 5 or Saint-Saëns 3?
I've played all the four seasons and I'm still working on Mozart 3.
I'll play for this concert Beethoven 5 sonata and bach's allemanda from the second partita
Which concerto should I play(I have difficulty to play fast but I dont have any problems in High positions )
If you have not done Kabalevsky and Bruch, you should do those first. Mozart 4 and 5 and SS3 are hard. Pretty much everyone does Bruch before Saint-Saens, and they often do Kabalevsky before Mozart 4 and 5. The big-time soloists make Mozart sound very easy but it's very hard to get it right.
This is the stage where teachers usually recommend a pedagogical repertoire sequence.
Yes but he asked here, so either that's not happening or he doesn't have faith in what he's been told.
That seems like a lot for a single concert. Do you have to play a concerto? Why not play another shorter piece or more of the Bach?
If you just did Mozart 3, I wouldn't do another Mozart. Saint Saëns is a big leap up from Mozart 3 and the other listed pieces. I would maybe do something like Bruch 1st movement. Kabalevsky is a good choice also. Although not as good of pieces, the common Viotti concertos or De Beriot 9 might be an option as well.
I like where Susan was heading with the Viotti and De Beriot, if you haven't played them. My teacher took me through those, and one of the Rodes before Vieuxtemps 2 and Wieniawski 2, with some smaller pieces in between, in order to build some technique up. She doesn't have her students play Mozart concertos until they have built some technique on romantic repertoire. If you keep playing Mozart after Mozart, you are unlikely to get much more out of it for now. Come back to it in a few years with fresh eyes.
I have forgot this one:
