I'm auditioning for Juilliard, CIM, USC and MSM this year and the Juilliard requirements are hard to select (let alone learn). Since I am working on the Tchaik for the concerto I need two contrasting post-1939 brilliant pieces. I was thinking the Shostakovich preludes but they don't fit the bill. My teacher mentioned the Prokofiev. I'd rather do the f minor than the D major, but the f minor was begun in 1938 and finished in 1947. Does that count as post-1939 (I really prefer the f minor one)? Also, should I only prepare one mvt. and then something else (Lutoslawski sounds good)? I know I can't manage to learn the whole piece by the end of February. Thanks in advance.
