What would be a suitable piece to play in student recital after Rieding 34?
My daughter who is turning 4 this month played Rieding 34 Concerto in a student concert last week.
What wound be a suitable piece for a student concert planned on Dec? By the way, she already played Seitz no 2 mov 3 so please exclude that!
I love the video. I love how she took her bow immediately and had her bow on the string before the pianist even sat down. No messing around with that one ... all business!
That is pretty impressive! Does her teacher have suggestions, or is her teacher wanting you to decide?
I was going to suggest the third movement of the Rieding 35 because the first 2 movements are probably easy especially if she can play all of the Rieding 34.
For something first position but still challenging, the final movement of Sartorios violin concerto is nice with some chromatic challenge. The whole concerto is great, but that first movement has ALOT of modulations which kids struggle with.
I love the rieding op 35 (b minor). The minor is a great switch-up for students at this level. La Cinquaintaine is lovely if she's ready for some shifting. Perlman (George) did a fun Concertino for this level, a minor, energetic, a bit of a Vivaldi-style prep without the shifting (one only at the end I think). There's also the Graznya Bacewicz Concertino which I LOVE--refreshing change of pace tonally, but a little trickier in the ear and under the fingers probably than rieding 34. Maybe more Vivaldi level.
I think Kathryn means Perlman's Concertino in A minor with some very good illustration of what accidentals can do. I think what would be a good choice.
