My daughter wants to apply for a music scholarship for which she will have to play two contrasting pieces on her first instrument and one on her second.
A lot of the higher grade trombone "pieces" are in fact two movements of a sonata. Obviously this means that for an exam the two movements are seen as "one piece" but would this be the same for a music scholarship?
Another question concerns a Cello sonata. Her teacher suggested she play just half of a movement because the whole movement takes 7-8 minutes to play. She said that in an audition they wouldn't want a piece that long and that their wasn't much point since the second half repeats the same techniques in a different key. I wondered whether English music teachers would find it acceptable for someone to turn up and say "I'm going to play the first half of X".
