Hi! After summer (2018) I'm starting the swedish equivalent of high school, and since I live in the city I've got like 50 ones to chose from and just discovered that there's a music/piano one (only one in the country). They have 14 spots but just 13 were filled last year, so they probably didn't get that many applicants..... The thing is, I really want to go there but I'm worried I'm not good enough! Last year their "high school" first year students played pieces like Waldesrauschen (Liszt) and Jeux d'eau (Ravel) and I've just played pieces like Grande Valse Brillante (Chopin), Arabeske op.18 (Schumann) and Elegie op. 3 no1 (Rachmaninov).

So now I'm trying to choose a piece to play for my audition in early March, does anyone have any suggestions on a piece that's on their level I can learn for my audition? Is it possible to make that sort improvement in just 3 months?

Thanks! Sorry for the long post

(Haven't asked my piano teacher, have a good reason)

Play something you're already comfortable with
