Specific admission criteria for Oboe

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.

Your performing skills will be tested on the basis of:

  • Major and minor scales (with up to four sharps and flats) along with the accompanying arpeggiated triads;
  • Two études by, for instance, Wiedermann or Ferling Flemming;
  • Three recital pieces from different stylistic periods, such as Handel’s Sonata in C Minor, Schumann’s Romanzen or Andriessen’s Ballade;
  • A concerto by, for instance, Bellini or Haydn.
