Repertoire choices:

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: SummerViolinInstitute@gmail.com. This information is necessary in preparing the daily schedule.

Repertoire recommendation:
Bring present 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: SummerViolinInstitute@gmail.com.
