Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Preparing violin excerpts for an orchestral audition
by Livermore, Jessica, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 22; 10196561
Abstract (Summary)

There are few excerpts more frequently requested at orchestral violin auditions than the opening pages of Richard Strauss’s Don Juan , Felix Mendelssohn’s Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Robert Schumann’s Scherzo from his Symphony No. 2. In this project report, some of the information needed to learn these excerpts successfully is examined. Among the topics discussed are bow strokes, connections to the parts of other instruments in the score, and practice methods. This project report will aid violinists in the thoughtful consideration, practice, and execution of these excerpts as they prepare for an audition.
