1. Sad Romance.
2. 1st part of Rieding B minor.

I still have problems with my rythm and intonation. I will start to work on it after a month. I really do not have enough time to play now, because of my LLB exams on University of London international programme and then, exams in my university in Moscow. Being so deep in my studying law, I just cannot be concentrated enough while playing violin.

Since you put this in the critique corner I'll give you a few tips.
First of all you are doing great and I really love your right hand flexibility.

The intonation is more distracting than I think it needs to be. Please play it slowly concentrating on EVERY single note. No note is less important than another in the scheme of things. Every note is important.
Listen to your recordings and learn to recognize which notes are too high or too low.

Next advice would be that you learn to count while playing. Rhythm is super important in order for others to enjoy your music to it's greatest potential.

You have worked hard to get to this level in such a short amount of time and it would be a shame if you didn't take the time to perfect your playing a bit more.

Thanks for feedback, Fiddlerman! During the summer I will spend as much energy and time as will be required to obtain a very good intonation and rhythm.

I also understand that what is presented in this video more looks like "trying to play" violin and not actually playing violin. So, I`ll fix the mistakes.
