Hi and thanks in advance for replying to this. I really like how upbeat and lyrical Madrigal is. However, I know it's too easy to play at an audition. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should play. It doesn't matter what time period as long as it's upbeat, lyrical, hopefully technical, and suitable to play at an audition. Also, if there are any suggestions for a slower but still lyrical and maybe technical piece I'd like to hear it, too.

(It's also a shame because I like Tchaikovsky's Valse Sentimentale, Jun Barkalore and Andante Cantabile but they weren't originally composed for flute. But if anyone has any recommendations on flute pieces similar to these that would be helpful.)

One of my favorites has always been Poulenc's Sonate. Also the Rondo movement to Bach's Hamburer Sonate is nice and up beat.

If you like french music you could always get the book...Flute music by French Composers...I think L. Moyse edited it. But, it has a lot of good rep in in...Faure, Chaminade, Gaubert, Enesco...

Just an idea! Also, is it a college audition? You may need two contasting pieces...you may want to put a baroque or classical piece on along with a french piece! Check out all the requirements! I have students audition a lot...usually they need at least two contrasting pieces...sometimes some etudes...sometimes even more then two pieces!

<Added>

Stupid me...look at the subject...it is a college audition...sorry!

Really, the whole point of a college audition isn't to play the hardest thing that you can find, but to play something as well as you can. They're mostly looking at things besides sheer technical ability as well.

A good contrast is fine, so this could be one of your pieces if you want.

college auditions typically require 2 pieces. if you would really enjoy playing madrigal, pair it with, as others have said before, another piece. flutists are expected to be able to play technically and lyrically. you may want to consider madrigal with either a mozart concerto (1st movement) or a bach sonata (hamburg sonata as kara mentioned is a great piece). with those two, you have both contrasting styles and time periods.
