I will play something I don’t particularly like if it will help me become a better violinist. I usually find that I like it the more I play it. Example, I am working on 14th Etude by Fiorillo, which I didn’t like that much when I first heard, but I am starting to become fond of it. It helps me to get more familiar with the key of E flat, and it also is giving me more experience with the g-string because I have to learn how to play grace notes on the g-string and shifting to 3rd position while doing those grace notes, which is kind of a challenge.
