I just thought of this a day or two ago, and I'm sure it's not a new idea, but anyways, I'm in the process of working on solos for college auditions, and I've been just looking for things to play for my own enjoyment and musical improvement. Recently I've been getting better acquainted with the Strauss waltzes. I particularly like Vienna Blood, Op. 354. So I took the liberty of finding a full score and transcribing the violin part for bass. It is mostly in thumb position, as all but a few parts can be comfortable notated in treble clef, but on the other hand it is not extremely high for most of the piece. Would something like this be accepted for a college audition, in addition to the other piece that I intend to perform (Eccles by the way, although not relevant)? Vienna Blood contains a mix of difficulties, ranging from the slower melodic parts to the fast runs and sixteenth notes at the end, but it's something that I'd like to attempt. Actually come to think of it, most of it is pretty difficult, considering that it was composed for a different instrument. I know they'd probably like to see your own musicality and not just technical proficiency, although this piece would offer more technical challeges than the Eccles or any other standard audition pieces, but what do you think of the idea? Any comments would be very appriciated.
