What does violin "brilliant concert piece" mean?
Some music school violin auditing requires student to play "brilliant concert piece".
Could someone give me some example of what violin song counts for "brilliant concert piece"?
Something *big* and *brilliant* and *sparkly* and *exciting*. Think the Wieniawski polonaises or the rondo from la Campanella or pretty much anything out of Sarasate's work.
Thanks for the reply. Sorry I should have give more detail. The school asked to submit five different videos:
These are the Juilliard requirements for the MM? They mean a virtuosic showpiece.
That's going to be some tough rep for an individual who describes himself as a 31-year-old beginner who's been playing for six months.
I think Shaoliang is just asking out of curiosity. So, Shaoliang, these are also called "showpieces" and if you search [showpieces] on this site you will find many examples discussed.
Thanks everyone! I googled showpiece and now I understand what does that means.^_^
