The easyest concerto
on: October 02, 2003, 05:18:56 PM
Is there an easy concerto that is however a "proper" copositon by a by a famous composer.
How about one about grade 4/5 standard.
One thats a good piece though?

Shostakovich #2 or Haydn D major are relatively easy, the first movements of both being the norm for competitions. Shostakovich is a very witty one, I heard some of it this summer. There are also arrangements of the piano parts of some of the larger concerti, but they are not "proper" repertoire and are usually awful. Also, I think some of the early Mozart concerti.
