Repertoire suggestions please
Hi all, I am an adult returner to the violin and currently working through Trinity Grade 5. Recently upgraded both my violin and my bow and beginning to become happier with how I am sounding (i am not very confident in my ability)
I would love some suggestions of other pieces to work on other than my current exam pieces if you wouldn't mind.
I want something that will challenge me but not put me way out of my depth if that makes sense.
Thank you in advance and I hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe.
“Trinity Grade 5” means nothing to me; could you name some specific pieces and/or études that you are currently playing, please?
Thank you for your reply,
I forgot, I have done some work on Dvorak Sonatina Op. 100 as well
I would tackle Dont Op. 37 before Kreutzer, if you haven't. What's your teacher situation?
Although in general I agree with doing Dont 37 before Kreutzer, the first several Kreutzer etudes (beginning with number two) are easier than those found at the beginning of Dont op 37.
Thank you both for your replies.
Try your lesson with Skype. It's surprisingly effective.
For American people on this site, Trinity is an alternative to ABRSM in the UK - roughly the same standard for each grade, arguably slightly easier. Try Encore violin book3 (Published by ABRSM). This has a good selection of pieces your level, my favourite teaching piece being Pastorale by Oskar Rieding.
Dont op. 37 is hard.
