So excited! It's a huge step up for me, as the last concerto I have been practicing on was Seitz's Student's concerto 2 - was stuck on it for about half a year - my teacher just wouldn't let me move on! and yesterday it finally happened - I moved on 🙂

Was sure that the shifting thing would be hellish to overcome, but at least for now it comes to me pretty naturally, maybe because I have been working on getting very familiar with the 3rd position for the past 6 months or so..

And it's so fun to play and the music is so beautiful, such a joy!

That's a wonderful piece of music.

@Uzi - so beautiful. and sooooo gets stuck in your head, that I will need a scalpel to take it out.. still worth it though 🙂

@pky  - I can say that what I have gone through so far in Vivaldi's, which is the first page of the 1st movement, is in fact a bit easier than, lets say, the last page of Seitz. It does however require a new set of skills, such as the shifting, which Seitz doesn't. Also, my teacher told me to brace myself because the 3rd part is going to be hell 🙂
