I play clarinet and piano, and while I don't think I'll be majoring music, I might minor in it (or I suppose double majoring is also a possibility.) Can you guys tell me what you think of my audition pieces (if they're difficult/impressive enough, etc)?
One of the programs I'd be working with focuses mainly on very classical stuff so I was thinking this:
-Praeludium und Fughetta in G-dur (Bach, BWV 902 [NOT 902a!])
-Piano Sonata No. 7 - Mvmt. I - Presto (Beethoven, Op. 10 No. 3)
Pretty much everywhere else I'm applying doesn't care, so I was thinking this:
-One of those previous two (or both?)
-La Cathedrale Engloutie (Debussy)
I would really appreciate if someone/some people could listen to these and tell me what they think about using them for a college audition, and possibly suggest some others. (If need be, I am probably most open to changing the sonata movement but the others can change too.)
Lastly, I sincerely apologize if this is not really a function of the Music Major forum, I just thought I'd try.
P.S.:I wasn't really thinking of auditioning on clarinet. I mean, I'm principal chair at my school, drum major, concertmaster, working on 4-yr all-stater, etc, so I guess I should, but I really haven't been working on anything. Rising senior btw.
