Simandl Concerto?

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by HaroldBass, Mar 10, 2006.


  1. I was wondering where in the world could I find the Simandl Concerto in G major? I know someone that has it, but it was given to him.

    You do not want to play that concerto.

    Harold -
    If you really want the Simandl concerto that bad just ask Simon or Justin. But I wouldn't rush, Levinson is going to make you play it anyway.

    Why wouldn't he want to play it? Is it extremely boring or difficult?

    The first movement is 7 pages (I believe) and 12 minutes of scales and arpeggios with no melodic lines whatsoever. Good old Franz does through in a double stop or two every once in a while though for good measure.
     
  8. I was just wondering why I couldnt find it anywhere, thats all.
