It's about time I start preparing for university auditions this coming march, and I can't for te life of me pick a piece. I need two of contrasting style, and the first one I chose is syrinx by Debussy. The second piece has to have piano accompaniment, and it had to be a contrasting style. Skill-wise, I'm around level 9-10 RCM but most of my repertoire is level 8 or under. I need some suggestions for a good audition piece with piano accompaniment, around RCM level 9-10. All suggestions welcome!

Here's a copy of the RCM syllabus:
www.musicdevelopmentprogram.org/sites/default/files/files/FluteSyllabus_online.pdf


Grade 9 starts on page 50.

The Faure Fantasie is lovely:



I was initially going to suggest Godard, but they're grade 8:
Allegretto

Valse

Hi, I'm in the same boat as you are. I've chosen the Chaminade Concertino, The Mozart Concerto in D, as well as my solo which is the E.C.P Bach sonata in a minor. If I were you with something to contrast the Syrinx my own suggestions would include The Griffes Poem, The Faure ( or any of the major french Literature) The Sancan Sonatine, or any of the moazart concertos, or bach sonatas. From the 20th century look into the Ernest Bloch suite modale.
Good luck in your college auditions too!!

I was thinking an excerpt from the Chaminade as well for my second piece (the university I'm looking at wants the pieces to be kept short) or Mozart's Sonata in D major quartet for flute and strings, arranged for flute and piano. I don't have sheet music yet for the Chaminade though, but hopefully I will get it for my birthday in a few weeks. It seriously only took me a week to learn Syrinx, so october to march should be enough time to learnt the Chaminade if I do use it.

I was also thinking of the Fantaisie Pastorale Hongroise by Doppler, but I'm not sure how much of a contrast that would be to Syrinx. They're both from around the same musical era.

The Chaminade is public domain, you may download it on IMSLP:

www.imslp.org/wiki/Concertino_pour_Fl%C3%BBte,_Op.107_(Chaminade,_C%C3%A9cile)

Go to the sheet music section and click parts for the flute part, there is a piano accompaniment in the arrangements section.

I think I'll go with the Griffes poem, if I can find an accompanist who can play the piano part.
