Recital order
on: September 04, 2003, 01:22:40 AM
Hi. Im giving an important recital next month in preparation for a competition here's what Im playing. Anyone got a possible order?

Prelude and Fugue #7 book 1. (E flat major) Bach
Etude for octaves (number 5, book 1) Debussy
6 lyric pieces Grieg
(Sailors song, grandmas minuet, at your feet, evening in the mountains, by the cradle, vals melancolique)
Sonata #5 (C major) Prokofiev
Sonata 7 k 309 (C major) first movement.  Mozart.

Thats about it. Any ideas?


For a good laugh, check out my posts in the audition room, and tell me exactly how terrible they are :)

Debussy 1st ...Bach ...Greig...Mozart...Prokofiev...

Prokofiev should definitely come last.

Well... I am pretty sure that I want Debussy last.
It kind of ends sounding like an encore with a brilliant finale... Prokovief should be near the end, but... well it ends in a ppp fade out... Im not sure if I want to end the recital that way...
