I'm still pondering a program for my Junior recital next fall. Here is my current idea:

Beethoven Sonata Op. 2 No. 3
Listz Sonetto 104 Del Petrarca
Ravel Jeux d'eau
Chopin Scherzo Op. 20 in Bm
Chopin Scherzo Op. 31 in Bbm

Any opinions or comments? It sits about an hour, which is decent for a junior recital. I had the Chopin in my fingers last year and the Ravel 2 years ago, although I haven't studied them with anyone. The Liszt is new as are the last 3 movements of the Beethoven (I played the first movement years ago). So I thought it had the advantage of being something I could pretty much hit the ground running with, while still getting to learn plenty of new material.

The program is pretty good. Just one thing though, for the modern piece, do you have any other options? The Ravel is a good piece, but there are many other more modern works that also merit attention. Maybe some Ligeti (not necessarily the more difficult etudes, some of them are more manangeable than others), or even Bolcom, who has a good set of etudes as well that you can pick from.

I really like that Beethoven sonata and the Chopin scherzi, the program should work very well in its entirety, good luck!

Thanks for the feedback. I don't disagree - there are some modern works that would also fit nicely in that spot. I was also thinking of the Leiberman nocturnes. The main reason I am leaning toward the Ravel is that I would really like to master his music, but I have had a difficult time of it in the past. This would be a way for me to see where I am now, and it also would give me a chance to study some ravel under my current teacher. I thought it could be a good springboard to Gaspard or Miroirs. As far as the program, I was thinking it might be a nice continuation of the Liszt (a composer I want to start focusing on more now that my technique can handle it) as well as a nice break in mood between the overtly virtuosic Beethoven and Chopin.

That is a good point. It is a good continuation, and I can see how a drastically more modern piece can cause too much of a contrast if put in that position.

Have you planned any encores? I do not know if they are done often, but a few senior recitals I saw here at school had at least one. (Although some did not include them)
