What to do next
I know this is a topic that has been posted over and over again, but I guess we’ve all been here. Pieces I have played are Mozart Concertos 4 and 5 with joachim cadenzas (1st movements), and the 1st movements of the Lalo Symphonie Espagnole and Bruch Concerto. Smaller pieces include Bartok Romanian dances and Tchaikovsky Melodie. I like the Vieuxtemps concerto 5 very much but I think it is out of reach in terms of difficulty. Thanks
Perhaps the 5th movement of Lalo? Or is that a big jump in difficulty from the first? I'm not sure
So long as your prior concertos were played well (performance-polished or at least close to that), you could be ready for Mendelssohn. I'm glad you enjoyed the Melodie by Tchaikovsky -- he wrote some other salon pieces that are harder but very nice, check out the recording by Oistrakh. Other choices could be the Conus or Wieniawski No. 2. Also how's your solo Bach?
The 2nd and 3rd movements of Bruch or if you wanted to play something from the 20th century, Kabalevsky and Barber are options. The Spring sonata might be a good choice if you have a pianist friend.
Paul- Thanks for the suggestions. I realized I haven’t done any solo Bach. Could the Chaccone be an option, or would I need another solo Bach piece before jumping into it?
I performed the chaconne before having touched a majority of solo Bach. At a glance, some of the fugues are more of a technical challenge than the chaconne. The real difficulty is in its length and building up the stamina to make it through the whole thing.
