I did the Tartini concertino, its gorgeous! Do that! I also did 'romanza' by poulanc (sp?) which is equally georgeous, and for my study i did two pieces by gordon jacob.

Don't do the Tartini, it's immensely boring. The Lutoslawski is good if you like twentieth century stuff, it comes off well as a show piece, although your fingering technique needs to be exact to get it up to speed.

Mozart is sooooo easy in regard to the notes but it's one of the hardest performances I've ever had to do, first movement goes on forever, second movement every single person in the room knows off by heart and so you can't make the slightest mistake, and your interpretation has to be one that other people will like. Third movement is fine apart from that four bars or so near the end where you have to keep crossing the break back to an A, it's quite tricky, takes a bit of practise.

No do Tartini, it sounds soooo nice! Movement three is lovely and slow and then movement four, is the opposite, very fast...i wouldn't say it was boring!

I love Tartini!

I've played the Poulenc but I prefer the Lutoslawski.

True Mozart is easy note wise but it does go on forever!!

Alan Ridout's Concertino is a good piece. I've just learnt that, it's on the grade 8 syllabus. It's fab!
