gershwin's preludes are no longer on the syllabus. in your "own choice" option you could play ONE of the preludes, as you cannot play any more than one work for each composer, unless stated in the syllabus. so you have one prelude (about 2 mins of programme time, including a generous pause before/after surrounding pieces.) moonlight sonata will take about 15 minutes, and la plus que lente will take 5.
that makes a programme of about 23 mins, including breaks between pieces, so you need another 12 mins anyway. you could make that up with some baroque/classical pieces, since you've already covered impressionism, early romantic, and 20th century.
Gershwin preludes no longer on it? are you serious?
right then I'll just play the 3rd one then...
Seriously, you'll probably need some more programme to make up the time.
Is it essential to play baroque? as I've just prepared pieces from Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin and Hindemith? Do you get penalised for this?
