I am auditioning for the Philadelphia Young Artists Orchestra and will be playing Haydn G Major Violin concerto, 1st movement. Do I have to play the cadenza (I am using Peters edition) since a cadenza wasn't part of the original music by Haydn, plus I haven't learned the cadenza and my audition is in 2 weeks? Should I mention beforehand when I let them know my audition piece that I will not be playing a cadenza so they do not ask for it? Any advice is appreciated!
(also, is this too easy a piece for this type of audition? I played it last year for all-states, but it's not that difficult of a piece...)
