I'm going to be graduating college in the spring with a BA in Music and decided to put on an elective recital. I have a list of pieces I'm going to play and I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the pieces and if it sounds like it'd make for a good recital. I'm especially worried about length since the recital is just going to be me since I couldn't find anyone to share it with. Ideally I'd like it to be 45-1 hour. Here are the pieces I'm thinking about for the big day! (In no particular order)
Concerto No. 4 (3rd Movement)-Mozart
Romance No. 2 in FM-Beethoven
Partita in EM (Prelude and Gavotte)
I'm not sure if this is 45 min-1 hour worth of music but I was told by a friend to take into account time for walking on and off the stage. Should I look into adding a quartet or duet performance to change things up? And/or play one less piece? Is there any particular order I should put the pieces in for the program? Also is it awkward to only play the last movement for the Mozart concerto? Please let me know what you think! :)
