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.
