Morpheus vs Reflection
A question for you viola players out there. Which of these 2, Morpheus by Rebecca Clarke or Reflection by Benjamin Britten is the easiest technically?
Thanks in advance.
I don't know the answer to this, but Morpheus is a particularly beautiful work and an audience-pleaser.
It is absolutely gorgeous I agree, but I am finding it diffucult so am looking for alternative
Morpheus is much easier, in my opinion.
Andrew I get that. Just trying to look around for a new Grade 8 C piece as I am kinda struggling with the Morpheus at the moment
Which exam board are you working on Jake?
MZ, it is indeed ABRSM haha
Very good, I hope the preparation goes well for it. Are you going to sit the grade?
Its funny you said that I like the Nadia Boulenger arr by leduc (piece no 3). I had a listen and it seems like a lot of fun
I am going to yeah. Next summer/autumn
Similar time line to myself. Part of the grade 8, I think is finding the pieces you just thoroughly enjoy. You could probably keep working on Morpheus alongside another C piece, and when it comes to the day, choose which ever is strongest. This is the method I’m going with, partly so my lessons remain interesting, but also to get more repertoire under my belt.
I haven't had a chance to ask him yet (I missed my lesson this week). But I'll ask him in my lesson next week. I also agree about picking pieces one enjoys
