Specific admission criteria for Flute
In addition to the general admission criteria, there are also specific instrumental requirements. During the audition, you will perform at least one étude and a recital piece, unless indicated otherwise. The pieces mentioned are merely examples. You can also opt for other works of a similar level.

- Technique: Major and minor scales (with up to seven sharps and flats) along with the accompanying triads, to be played both staccato and legato;
- At least two études of different characters (such as legato, staccato or a rhythmic étude) to be chosen from: T. Böhm’s 24 Caprices, Opus 26, H. Genzmer’s Neuzeitliche Etüden and S. Karg Elert ‘s Etudes, Opus 107 (nos. 1 to 10);
- Recital pieces, where you demonstrate that you can perform works from at least three different stylistic periods: J.S. Bach’s Sonatas, parts of W.A. Mozart’s flute concertos in either G major or D major, A. Roussel’s Joueurs de flûte, Opus 27 and L. Andriessen’s Sonate 1956.
