I am planning to present a full recital. My audience will not be as sophisticated as NY or Seattle, i.e. However, I would like to present a well-balanced recital with college audition materials in mind. Don't want to play a movement from a concerto. I just don't think that's appropriate for a solo recital. I do have a very fine pianist who will accompany me (she is very very good) If you were in my shoes, what would you play? I would love suggestions. Do sophmores/seniors in HS or freshmen in college play entire Bach suites or partitas, for example? Do audiences sit through them anymore, or are they bored? Is it OK to play only a few movements? Any suggestions would be appreciated... and stories about what YOU played for your senior recital!
