unusual idea

Since the SAA asks for a performance of either the Mozart D Major or the Mozart A Major, I have an crazy idea.  I’m thinking of writing to the SAA and asking if I can  play Mozart D Major up to the Cadenza….  and then play a separate performance of the Mozart A Major Cadenza.  Sound crazy?  My stand partner liked the idea.  I know the A Major Cadenza much better since I played it often in my youth (somehow I don’t know the Concerto as well)  and I know the D Major Concerto First movement from teaching it many times… the cadenza, not as well.  Right now I sound best on D Major Concerto and A Major Cadenza.  It still fits their rules.  I will write them email and ask them what they think.  What do you think?

  1. Whose cadenzas are they, by the way?
    Let us know what SAA says….

  2. Hi Yoko – My email has been out so I didn’t get your comment until recently…

    Cadenzas are Joachim.

    SAA hasn’t written back to me but now I am planning on playing the entire A Major. It’s in better shape. So number 5 it is… I’m listening to Arthur Grumiaux. Every day. And I practiced yesterday and today!

    Hi from Australia,
    I am hoping to get a copy of a study sheet – Book 4. I am inspired by your ‘system’. I think the study sheet will suit my teaching style.
