Just a quick one. Would J Schubert's viola concerto, first movement, be a valid piece to audition with at a conservatoire for undergraduate?
I would say yes, as it seems to be at the same level that the other classical concertos, but you should better ask!
I haven’t seen the score but if it’s supposedly similar in level to other classical concerti than why not pick hoffmeister or stamitz which will be guaranteed to be accepted. Conservatory’s these days frequently will want either Walton or Hindemith though even if they don’t say it.
On one of the websites it says Hindemith, Walton, Bartok, Hoffmeister or Stamitz
Like many have said on different threads, it is always best to audition with a standard piece. Because it is not the piece itself, but how your are playing, that they want to assess. And this is best evaluated over a standard piece.
@Jean, that makes sense. Thanks
For the avoidance of doubt, which "J Schubert" is this? "Johannes" and "Joseph" are listed in IMSLP.
Joseph I think. His concerto is in C I believe
