I am a violinist (rising junior in hs) looking for advice on repertoire. I want to take on a concerto that will challenge me technically, but will still be something I can shape and have fun with. My teacher and I haven’t discussed this yet, but I would love to get any opinions/advice in advance!
Here is a list of what I have performed before, from the previous 3 years:
Mozart Violin Concerto No. 3 (all movements)
Viotti Concerto No. 22 (all movements)
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 (all movements) (Performed as a soloist with an orchestra, 3rd movement is my favorite to play!)
Bach Partita No. 3 (finished all movements while learning the above 3)
Mozart Violin Concerto No. 4 (Working on the 1st movement)
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor (Finished the 1st recently, working on the 2nd and 3rd)
Bach Sonata No. 1 (Finished the Adagio, Fugue, and Presto)
I am also working on the etudes and caprices from Dont 35 and Rode (further information to give you insight on where I am technically).
I appreciate any and all suggestions!
