I have to perform a 3 minute piece with piano accompaniment in an interview and wondered if anyone had any suggestions?
I have to impress the panel.
Cheers

What sort of level playing is this? The answer would be different depending on whether the audition's for the school second orchestra or county youth orchestra. (What grade are you at? I think we'll understand each other as we're both in UK - apologies to the US members who use a different grading system)

What about...The Marcello Sonata? I think the first two movements, without repeats would come to about 3 minutes. It isn't too hard, but when played well would be impressive.

Also, the Ibert Arabesque? It is lyrical and makes good use of Tenor Clef.

Both of these can be found on

Just remove the space between the r and u.

Thanks for the suggestions

I am Grade 8 standard (or at least I passed my grade 8 many years ago)

I am performing for a teaching position.

Thanks all

Ah, in that case, I would say those two are too easy.

Vivaldi in Em, mvmnt 1 is a little over 3, but fun...

Also, what about the first movement of the Tansman Sonatina? It's quick and without repeats should finish around 3.

I agree with the Tansman, but the first movement of the Hindemith Sonate is about 3 minutes and it's beautiful.
