I'm a violin student since 2013(6 year) and I'm currently preparing Mozart 3 (KV 216) for a concert
I arrive to play the second mov in two weeks of hard working(1h30 per scool days and 2-5 hours for wednesday , saturday and Sunday)
I arrived to play the rondo(3 mov) in one month(with difficulty on fast passage the first two weeks)
But here's my question:
Is it normal that I work the first movement during three months and that I play it perfectly EXCEPT these measures;:
71-72(if think in two days It'll be perfect)
186-190(which for the moment needs a lot of work)
How do you pass these measures without problemes(I've Henle Verlag edition son I have their fingerings and bowing)
What cadenza is the easiest?(there is one in the Henle Verlag but I personally don't like it)
Waiting for your answers
The most popular cadenza is probably the one by Sam Franko because it's not super hard. Josh Bell wrote a nice one (on his album of course). There is one by Flesch which is harder than the Franko. Oistrakh, Totenberg, Francescatti -- there must be dozens of cadenzas available for this concerto.
Those are tough measures. They involve a lot of repetition and slow practice to get nice, at least with me. I found learning them in smaller bites helped. Have you considered writing your own cadenzas?
For those passages maybe think a little about the fingerings? The fingerings that I have at bar 186 in the Franko edition (Schirmer) are fine. Remain in third position until the second beat of 187. Catch the F# and D at the end of 186 with 1-0 just by reaching back with your first finger. In 187 catch the first two D's with 4(0)-0 then play in first position and shift back into 3rd position on the F# using the open A to give you time to shift. In 71-72 I think you just have to dog it out in first position. Starting with 3 on the A and shifting back to 2 on the C# is an alternative but you're trading the string crossing for other insecurities (intonation in 2nd position and another shift). Practicing those bars in various rhythmic groupings will likely help.
