    Hi! I've heard a lot of new names and pieces on this forum and some I am familiar with, and I'm having trouble sorting them out.

    I'm about to enter college so I think it would be great if I knew about the standards in each category.


    I don't really know any...if you could only know 5, which would they be?

    Bottesini's (2 of them, correct?)

    If you have any other categories, feel free to add them!

    Bend, Oregon
    Beethoven 5
    Beethoven 9
    Mozart 35
    Mozart 40
    R. Strauss - Ein Heldenleben
    If I could have 6 I would add:
    R. Strauss - Don Juan
    These are on almost all of the orchestra auditions.

    Add at least the Bourrees and Gigue from the 3rd Bach Cello Suite as well as the Dittersdorf Concerto in D and the Vanhal Concerto. The Bottesini Concerto #2 in b minor is the one that you want.
