Hi, fellow musicians and enthusiasts,

I just wanted to know how my programme for DipABRSM is (everything is taken from the given repertoire list):

1.Mendelssohn Prelude & Fugue in F minor op.35 no.5 [total ~7 min]
<<or, maybe>>
Scarlatti 2 Sonatas in A, Kp.208 (L.238) and Kp.209 (L.428) {to be performed as pairs} [around 7.5 to 8 min with repeats]
<<which one do you think is better?, Scarlatti sounds bright and pleasing, but isn't as technically/musically difficult/complex as Mendelssohn>>

2.Mozart Sonata in D K.311 [15-17min]

3.Brahms Rhapsody op.79 no.2 [6:30min] <<or any other Romantic pieces of this level you'd recommend, I'd prefer Chopin>>

4.Rachmaninoff Prelude op.23 no.7 in C minor [2:20min]
<<or maybe>>
Faure Impromptu F minor op.31 no.2 [3:30min]

What do you people think? Does this programme "offer a wide-ranging yet coherent mixture of periods, style, mood and tempo" ?-- quoted ABRSM --
Additionally, if any of you have taken this diploma before please consider telling me about your experience/preparation.

Thanks a lot for your opinions and advice.
