I may die of shock soon. Literally. My school has posted the placement audition requirements. And, it looks rough from my end at least. Mahler I, movements I and IV. And of course, they won't specify what parts of each movement they want until the day of. The first movement doesn't look so scary but the last one with a few fun-looking flats and 8va all over the place have sent my head spinning. How can I ever hope to be able to play these things for an audition of all things? How can I hope to play well when I know that I will be auditioning with (against?) returning students who might just be able to eat me alive for breakfast?
I am dreading August 20th 2010.
Enjoying the conversation on the future of classical music here. Lots of thought-stimulating blogs to read!
Read. React. I am highly upset.
