I'm auditioning for a pretty prestigious youth orchestra with a lot of talent, and I'm wondering which piece I should play for my audition: Wieniawski's Concerto No. 1 in D Major or Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole (1st Movt)?
Wieniawski is more difficult for me, and I feel more confident playing Lalo but will the judges mark me down for playing an easier piece? Really, my question is should I play a harder piece but not do as well or play the easier piece and do much better? Just as a reference, I know a girl who played Lalo in 9th grade and got in to the orchestra, but I'll be in 11th grade when auditioning.
