My College Piano Competition Repertoire!!
on: August 18, 2005, 10:30:27 PM
Ok, what do u guys think of my program! I hope that the judges will appreciate the Granados instead of the countless Chopin and Listz that is going to be playing. I know this isn't a super technical program, but i'm going for quality over badly attempted very difficult pieces. Also for the contemporary choice, what do u guys perfer. The prokofiev isn't well known but it's quite an intresting piece as is the Casella.

Beethoven - Tempest Sonata Ist Mvt. (Only need one movement)
Granados - Suite: Valses Poeticos, Arabesque from 12 Spanish Dances
Prokofiev - Etude Op. 2, No. 4   OR   Alfred Casella  - Ostinato in the name of B-A-C-H

(Also, ditch the Prok and do the Casella)

Good pacing and contrast, with the Prokofiev anyway; I am not familiar with the Casella piece; pick the one you like! :)
