I want to do the Lars-Erik Larsson concerto for my school's concerto compitition, but our orchestra is quite week. How difficut are the string parts compared to other pieces? More difficult than Ibert? Scaramouche?
Thanks

I'd say it's probably harder than the Scaramouche and slightly easier than the Ibert.

Give a recording to the orchestra conductor or something ;o

Or better yet -- get a score to the conductor.

If you really like this concerto, you should find a way to purchase a score for your personal library.

There should be a reduced score that you can show to the conductor. If your school (and I'm assuming it's a college) doesn't have a copy, you might be able to get one via inter-library loan.

The first movement tends to be alot harder for the orchestra than the second and third. Intonation gets really squirrely with the 1st theme. Often the second and third are played together in an audition, omiting the first. Perhaps this is a possibility if the piece cannot be done by the orchestra in it's entirety.
