Announcements

June 15 Update:
The daily schedule is now available. The repertoire for each day is chosen in part to provide interest and variety between concerti and sonatas. Unaccompanied works are generally at the beginning or end of sessions to facilitate scheduling with the pianist.

May 31 Reminder:
If you have not already done so, please email me a list of your repertoire. This is needed in order to prepare the daily class schedule.
More info below.

May 2 update:
Information on housing during the summer at Northwestern is now available.  To reserve space and register, please visit the Summer Session Housing web page. The Registrar’s office will send out NetId and password info by the end of next week. You will use these to register for housing and to arrange for tuition payment.

Repertoire:

Please consider the repertoire suggestions below as you prepare to attend the SVI. Having several pieces that are already well prepared will give you the flexibility to play different pieces for different teachers.

When you have decided on what you will play while you are here, please email me your list: bmilton@northwestern.edu. This information is necessary in preparing the daily schedule.

Repertoire recommendation:
Bring several works (3-4)  that you already know well. The idea is to bring music that you have already learned, not works-in-progress. You will get the most out of the classes by bringing your most prepared works. You may also include orchestra excerpts.

Examples:

  • concerto
  • sonata with piano
  • virtuoso piece
  • Bach
  • Ysaye
  • caprice – Paganini, Wieniawski, Beriot
  • orchestra excerpts

Important: When you have decided on what you will play while you are here, please email me your list: bmilton@northwestern.edu.
