Grad recital repertoire ideas
on: December 06, 2018, 11:31:24 AM
Ok guys just want to know your opinion on how difficult/manageable the program I plan for my grad recital will be.

1. Handel's Suite No. 1 in Bb Major
2. Clementi Sonata in b minor, op. 40 no. 2
3. Liszt Transcendental etude no. 9, "Ricordanza"
4. Scriabin Fantasy in b minor
5. Schumann Concerto in a minor

There's another piece I have left out here and I'm still deciding what that piece will be but it is going to be easier than the other five.

How long do you think preparing for this program will be? I have already memorized the Schumann concerto btw but have not technically begun the other pieces. How hard is it? Which do you think I should study first? What are some of your tips to learning and mastering these pieces efficiently and substantially?

I'm studying at a music conservatory/college and have been taking formal piano lessons for almost eight years.

Thanks!
