i will have the chance to audition for a local college in the next few months and i am trying to decide what would be apropriate. the college requires two solos, scales, and sight reading. the first time that i auditioned for a college i played die meistersinger by wagner. since then my playing has gotten better and i would like to try to prepare something a little harder for my second solo. i have listened to the clips from mark morton's new c.d. and i am thinking about trying kousseuitsky's concerto, op.3 (i'm not sure how to write that, i think that is correct). i know that this is mostly thumb position and i was wondering if that would be okay along with the wagner peice? also, with the scales, is it better to play one or two octaves? i have been out of school for a while and although i did get accepted to the first college i never went because of some problems with money. i have spoken to the head of the department who is working on schedueing a tour of the campus and a lesson with there string department but untill then i was just looking for some general advice. thank you for any help.
