So i'm starting to pick out music for my college auditions and was wondering if anyone knew of any pieces that would be good for an audition. Right now i'm thinking about playing Fantasy-Piece by Schumann as my solo but i'm not quite sure yet. any suggestions?

College audition repertoire could run the gambit of many things. The most important thing is to pick something that you are comfortable with and can play well...Professors would rather hear an easier piece played well than a sloppily played piece with more difficulty. Here are some suggestions of pieces that I like and work well as audition rep.

Concerti-
Mozart, Weber (1, 2, Concertino and Grand Duo Concertante), Copeland, Finzi, Krommer, Tartini (Concertino), Spohr (1, 2 , 3, and 4.)

Sonatas-
Arnold (Sonatina), Saint-Saens, Bernstein, Hindemith, Brahms (1 and 2), Poulenc.

Other Works-
Debussy-Premiere Rhapsody, Finzi-Five Bagatelles, Babin-Hillindale Waltzes, Arabesques-JeanJean, Adagio and Tarantella-Cavallini, etc etc. This list is pretty much endless.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, i borrowed a solo book from the music library at my school, it's called- rubank intermediate solos and it has some good ones in it so i'm going to play through it this weekend. Well, I know of a few places that i want to audition at, but i'm trying to see if there are any others- i want to be a music therapist, and not many schools offer the program, plus my parents want me to stay instate because it's cheaper. so far i want to aution at- Shenandoah Conservatory, James Madison University, and Radford University.
