Piano Audition

Louis Lortie

Academic Year 2021-2022


! Total duration of DVD recordings for piano auditions must not exceed 30 minutes.

1. Deadline: 30.11.2021

2. Repertoire requirements:

  • 1 piece from 18th Century
  • 1 piece from 19th Century
  • 1 piece from 20th Century
  • + excerpt explaining your motivations

We would prefer the candidates to play 3 selections: one each from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. If you do not want to select those periods from the history of music, you are free to do so but we believe you might restrain your chances to be selected. EVERYBODY must submit also a small excerpt talking (3 to 5 minutes) explaining why they want to participate in this class, what their expectations are, and if they submit a different choice of repertoire, the reason for doing so.
