So I may only be a sophomore right now, but my teacher wants me to start preparing for a senior solo now! I'm happy though. Anyway, he suggested I check out the Mozart and Weber bassoon concertos [both only wrote one to my knowledge] saying that either should work. I'm looking to see if anyone has any opinions either of these.
~~~~~~
I am looking for opinions (for both if possible) on...
*Difficulty in speed
*Difficulty in range
*Difficulty in general
*Sound (Do you like the piece overall?)
*Sound (Do you like the bassoon part?)
*Enjoyment (How fun is playing it?)
*ANYTHING ELSE you can think of
~~~~~~~
I know it's a lot, but if your opinions are greatly appreciated no matter how much you can contribute

my teacher is starting me on the Mozart Bassoon Concerto soon. Maybe I can help when I actually get the music

Please tell me when you do. I found them both on itunes so I'm going to listen to the Weber one soon. I already had the mozart one

OK...
I checked everything out, and personally I'd go with mozart, mostly because I like the way it sounds.
If you're on the edge, maybe you could do a little of both. Only do the first part of mozart, and a little of Weber, then maybe blend in a little Super Mario as well.

I would suggest the Mozart Concerto. Weber seems a little to advanced for most seniors (I found that personally) - it needs to be just a little faster than most can play. If you aren't taking lessons (I assume you must be), DO IT. It's so much easier to learn the Mozart the right way the first time around than do it badly and have to relearn it. Good luck with picking your piece!
