What Now?

Hey, cellists! I am a Suzuki student just finishing up book 10 (last cello book) and I was wondering what I should learn next. Book 10 consists of 1 piece: the Boccherini Cello Concerto #1. The only other cello concerto I've learned is the Haydn cello concerto #1, which is Suzuki book 9. I am about Intermediate level, I've been playing for almost 9 years. I know that the Dvorak Cello Concerto, Elgar concerto, and Shostakovich concertos are really famous, maybe one of them is next? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi! I am a 8th grade viola player!

Hi! I am a 8th grade viola player! I am looking for a piece that I can practice and play at the end of the year in front of my teacher so that I can move up in my orchestra class. Please help me find a piece that's not too hard but can show that I am capable of playing at a 10th grade level. I would prefer that it be something modern or from a movie, but if you think it is a good piece please comment the name. I need all the help I can get. Please nothing too hard or too easy. Thanks!


                                   
                               

Pretty/fun to play cello duets?

Are there any lovely pieces for just 2 cellos? I'm looking for music for a friend and me: standard wise around Grade 5/6/7 for one part, and the other part, just not too much treble clef!

The standards are a bit specific, but if anyone has any suggestions for any pieces that sound great as just a cello duo please! (I've looked at the 2Cellos, and I'm considering Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, but I think the other arrangements are currently either too short or hard).

Thank you!
