competion...repertoire?
on: March 30, 2005, 03:23:46 AM
So,
Bach's Prelude and Fugue no. 2 in c-
Beethoven's Sonata in G+
or and Impromptu by Shubert....
which one should I enter in the scholarship competition.
I'm thinking Bach is the most impressive, but it's also easy to mess up.
Shubert is easy as pie, maybe too easy, but I know it the best, well, maybe that's because slow songs are just easier
Beethoven...don't know..

What Beethoven G Major are you talking about? Op. 31 No. 1, Op. 49 No. 2 or Op. 79??? And which impromptu? If it's easy as pie it must be Op. 142 No. 2. I need specifics though. If it's Beethoven Op. 31 No. 1, do that. If it's Op. 79, do the Prelude and Fugue.

Yes, the Impromtu is op. 142, no. 2, and the Beethoven is op. 79, so I guess that means go with the Prelude and Fugue?

Come on guys, some one help me out here.  Do I go with the Bach or is it to risky for this type of competition.  I'll be playing against some provincial finalists who are also entered so I want to pick the right piece ???

if you know the bach well, it shouldnt be that "risky"....dont not do a piece just because you think it risky....just learn the piece so well that its not a hit-or-miss thing nemore
