Hi all! I prepare for a competition that Will take place in january and I have some wonderings regarding repertoire! In first round one most play two etudes, one most be by Chopin, one movement from a classical sonata and one prelude and fugue by Bach. The competition consists of 3 round, and this is what I planned to play :

Round 1:
P&F E major bk 2
Beethoven Op 26 mvt 1 OR 4
Chopin Op 25 5 OR Op 25 12
Debussy Pour les Tierces

Round 2
2nd round is 40 min free repertoire. Here I thought of either playing this:

Chopin Barcarolle
Debussy Estampes
Webern Variations Op 27
Schubert Impromptu Op 142 no 1 OR 142 no 3

Or this :
Beethoven Op 109
Debussy Estampes
Webern Variations Op 27

Round 3
Mozart Piano concerto no 20 D minor

So now The question is mostly : What do you think of The program? And should I do Chopin Op 25 5 or 25 12? And which movement from Op 26 would suit best? And which of The two alternatives for 2nd round would you choose? And if The first alternative, Then which impromptu, Op 142 1 or 3?

Thanks in advance and I apologize it The questions are many!

Good!
Main thing that strikes me, before seeing the specific questions, is that the second program for Round 2 has a big "if" on it, and a clear answer depending on the answer to the if.
If you're confident about how you could play Op. 109, both musically and technically, that program would be terrific. But if you give any impression of not being up to it (either musically or technically -- and IMO not that many people are!) then it would hurt you to have the piece on your program.
The other program is good -- but this one could be spectacular, but very high risk.

...should I do Chopin Op 25 5 or 25 12?

Either one, totally. IMO the only thing that matters between them is which one you can play most confidently.

Quote
And which movement from Op 26 would suit best?

IMO (everything here is IMO) smile for sure the 1st movement.

....the two alternatives for 2nd round....if The first alternative, Then which impromptu, Op 142 1 or 3?

Again, whichever you think you would do best. They're both good choices.

P.S. You might wind up with 3 "variations" sets. I think that's OK and even interesting, provided that you really love that kind of piece, but it might be a reason to pick #1 from the Schubert rather than #3.

I think your program is very good! I only have one question. For the last round, can you choose any concerto? If so, I hope that you know the Mozart concerto very well, because the other contestants will probably all play the big concertos. Of course if you feel completely confident in the Mozart concerto it shouldn't be a problem. Good luck!
