I have finished my ATCL, and recently I am preparing for my LTCL exam. I have decided to play three pieces, but Iím not sure whether the programme will be balanced.
For the 37-43 minutes performance, I have thought of playing
J.S. Bach - Toccata no. 7 in G, BWV 916                                                                                     
Beethoven - Sonata in D minor, op. 31 no. 2 ĎTempestí         
Mendelssohn - Andante & Rondo Capriccioso op. 14                                                                                     
Is the programme balanced enough? I am worried that marks will be deducted if the programme is not balanced enough, as the written year of Beethoven and Mendelssohnís works are both in 1800ís.
Thank you so much for the advice. :D

That looks fine but ultimately your teacher knows best. I played Beethoven (Hunt), Ravel and Rachmaninov, so consider that even more 'unbalanced' than yours. Ugh, if only I could play all Ravel...

Thanks! :) Actually my teacher suggested me to choose Beethoven's Tempest and Mendelssohn's Rondo Capriccioso because she chose these two pieces in her LTCL exam in the past as well, and the Bach one was chosen by me cuz I like playing Bach's compositions a lot :P

I like it! It's missing something romantic I think (Mendelssohn doesn't count lol.) I'm playing the Rondo Capriccioso in mine as well! My program so far is:

Mendelssohn- Rondo Capriccioso
Mendelssohn- Variations Serieuses
Casella- Toccata
Prokofiev- Suggestions Diabolique
Ravel- Jeux d'eau
Ravel- Une Barque sur l'ocean

And something else, either the American preludes, the Grainger Faure, or the Say Paganini. Still undecided. The above is also in no particular order at the moment. Though now that I'm comparing mine to yours, I'm missing something classical/baroque lol.
