Specific admission criteria for Harp
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.

- Major and minor scales along with the accompanying arpeggiated triads and tetrads;
- Two études of different character, tempo and technique, such as Bochsa’s 50 Études, Opus 34 (Volumes 1 or 2), Nadermann’s 18 Etüden für die Höhere Ausbilding or a sonata from the 7 sonates progressives;
- Two recital pieces from different stylistic periods, such as Natra’s Sonatina, Beethoven’s Variationen über ein Schweizer Lied, Grandjany’s Frère Jacques or Van Delden’s Impromptu.
