Repertoire

In order to be as inviting as possible to pianists and guitarists from a wide variety of ages and levels of ability, there are no specific compositions or composers that participants must perform. One of the criterions of adjudication will be program selection, rewarding candidates for the creativity or uniqueness of their selection(s), or pairing of complementary pieces. Submissions must meet two basic criteria:

    1. The works performed must be classical works that are out of copyright. We cannot accept or adjudicate interpretations of jazz, pop, rock, or other musical genres. If you are unsure whether or not a work is out of copyright, use resources such as www.imslp.org or www.copyright.gov to guarantee that your submission will be eligible.
    2. The composition(s) performed may not be abridged or shortened in any way, with the exception of skipped repeats. For example: a student may choose to perform only a single movement from a sonata without repeats, but may not submit a recording of only the exposition of a first movement. Preludes and fugues from J.S. Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier are to be performed in pairs, and not individually.

 

Pianists Category A (up to 10 minutes)

Because of the young age of participants in this category, the repertoire requirements will be left free to the individuals and their music teachers. The following suggestions are intended as ideas and suggestions for music teachers and their young students, although students should not in any way feel limited to these works.

Young students may choose to perform single sonata movements or suite movements; piano pieces;  or other technically “easier to perform” compositions. These may include, but certainly are not limited to, the following:

  • Sonatina movements from Muzio Clementi’s Six Sonatinas Op. 36
  • Pieces from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Notebooks for Anna Magdalena Bach
  • Pieces from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Nannerl Notebook
  • Pieces from Robert Schumann’s Album for the Young
  • Compositions selected from anthologies for young students such as G. Henle’s Leichte Klavierstücke, volumes I & II
  • Béla Bartók’s Mikrokosmos, Sz. 107

 

Pianists Categories B & C (up to 12 minutes)

Pianists in these categories may choose to perform the same works as those listed in category A, but should also strive to perform works of a larger scale. These may include, but certainly are not limited to, the following:

 

  • Prelude and fugue from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier
  • Suite or sonata movements from composers such as Domenico Scarlatti, Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, etc.
  • Individual character pieces, such as Preludes from Frédèric Chopin’s Op. 28, or Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen Op. 15

 

Guitarists Category A (up to 10 minutes long)

Guitarists in Category A may choose their programs freely.

  • Original work for guitar of Western-European composer from ca.1700-1850.
