I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these? They basically say play a 50 minute recital with pieces representing various styles/periods. What would make a good audition piece? My strentgth is strong technique and fast fingers, but I know that they want musicality too! I know they say Bach and Mozart are good for undergraduate, but are they too easy for grad school? I am sort of thinking of playing Bach sonata in e minor or b minor, devienne concerto #7, schubert variations and unsure about 20th century piece. Ireally need your input!!!!

by 20th century do you mean something extended technique-wise, or just something contemporary? Mozart is never too easy for an audition of any type...that's why it's asked for at so many auditions.

Faure Fantaisie, Poulenc Sonata, Bach C Major or Eminor, pieces that are not too long are good cause you can get through the entire thing

Martin Ballade also good choice, Schubert intro and variations on Trokne Blumen...
