Prescreening Repertoire

The first step of the audition process is for you, the applicant, to upload a prescreening video by the December 1st application deadline. Piano accompaniment is preferred but not required for prescreening. The video recording must contain the following repertoire:

  • Bach: Sarabande from Suite No. 5 for Solo Cello, arr. Hoss (p. 33); no repeats
  • Mozart: Concerto #4, first movement, exposition only
  • Schumann: Adagio (All) and Allegro - up to letter D, or to the 18th bar
  • Strauss: Ein Heldenleben, opening
  • Strauss: Til Eulenspiegel, opening
  • Wagner: Siegfried's Rhine Journey, short call

Live Audition Repertoire

If you are invited to audition, the live audition repertoire is the same as above. Memorization of the concerto is encouraged, but NOT required. Piano accompaniment is required. A list of pianists will be provided if you are invited.
