Hello every one!
Even though it’s very early in the year, I am already preparing
audition music for the New England Conservatory. At NEC, There are
three Orchestras that contain harp. Two of these will be open for
new auditionees- the Youth Rep and Youth Philharmonic. So-
I was considering playing the Debussy Danse Sacree for the slower
movement, since its so difficult technically. Is this a good
audition peice? If not, any other suggestions for a slower, more
lyrical but still very challenging peice are welcome. I’ve been
considering trying to learn Claire de Lune- has anyone played
this… is it good for auditions?
And, I also need a faster movement. I’ve been considering the
First Movent of Handel in Bb. I play the Salzedo version, which is a
bit more technically difficult. These seems like a good peice, but
EVERY harpist in the world plays it, and i would prefer playing
something unusual like a Ginastera concerto. Has any one played
Handel Passacaille in Bb Minor. It isnt the most difficult peice in
the world. Some of it is rather slow, so I dont know it would be
considered a fast and technically challenging peice. Plus, I’ve
already learned it and it only took about 2 months to complete it.
any one wanna help? thanks a lot!!! 🙂
