  1. Thank you so much for your concern and your insight! We decided to go with Saint-Saëns 3 because of my enthusiasm for it. I'm sure I’ll be able to play some more eclectic pieces in the future!
  2. Hi! Thank you all so much for your remarks. Certainly, the best thing to do would be to talk more in-depth about this with my teacher. I was just curious about your suggestions! Concerning the Khatchaturian, I wasn't crazy about it the first time I heard it, and I found that I only really liked the first thirty seconds, hahaha. I'm not sure I'd want to play it for who knows how long. I'm also a bit afraid to venture out too far, although I'm not entirely sure of my boundaries at the moment (if I'm making even an ounce of sense). Mendelssohn has always struck me as something hard to play well (but that's not to say that other pieces aren't this way as well), so I kind of assumed that I'd play Mendy after Saint-Saens, Wieniawski, Lalo, and all that jazz.
  3. Hi! Im a freshman in high school, and I’m wondering what my next piece should be. I’m finishing up the Bruch in G minor, I’ve done Mozart 4, and I’ve recently just started on Zigeunerweisen. I’ll need a new concerto for a concerto competition coming up in January. I could, of course, play one of my already learned concertos, but I’m rather curious about new pieces.) Do you think any of these pieces — Wieniawski, Saint-Saens, or Mendelssohn — would be reasonable? (And is there really that much of a difference in difficulty in the concertos I’ve listed?) I’m always open to suggestions!
