The father of my 10 year old student has been bedeviling me to give his son something really challenging. After all, the kid has no school for a week so he can practice a lot. Since I had no advance notice about this request, I worked hard to find something quickly. I chose a few tunes with technical difficulties, but the kid's father said that he wanted a long piece for his son. I couldn't find any right then and there, so I promised to email them something. I scavenged around the Internet for a piece that's long enough and difficult enough to keep the father off of my back. I found it! I emailed them the score of the Vivaldi concerto in A minor. So there!
