Hi all!!!!!!I dont know if this is the right place to post this here, but u can move it to where t belongs. SO I plan to go for an audition for MPYO (Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra) Quite a hard orchestra to get it (the chances for me is 1% as i am still not very good) but I wanted to taste how auditions feel like, so I am going!!!> but they require me to prepare two pieces with different style(classical, romantic, or something like that ......something lyrical and another technical. Any suggestion???Hope that the scores are easy to obtain Hi

Are they looking for solo pieces or for exerpts?

If they are looking for exerpts, you could use the Mozart Requiem "Tuba Mirum" as a classical exerpt.

For a Romantic exerpt, you should select something a little faster, perhaps the "Hungarian March" or "Ride of the Valkyries".

If either of these are beyond your range, look through an exerpt book to find something that will work (or come back and tell us; I have some other ideas).

If they want you to play "concerto" style pieces, you might be able to use a Bordogni etude (Rochut) for the Classical and maybe the Guilmant "Morceau Symphonique" for the Romantic.

If you're looking for a piece to show off good tone and internation, ie. a lyrical piece, have a look at stuff written by Jonathan Warburton. He's a Bass Trombonist from England, and he writes some nice stuff for bass and tenor trombone.

I've got his piece, "Among us" (a bass piece - I don't know if it's published yet). I got it from him personally.

"Among Us" simple to play in that it won't show off any technical skill. It will show how well you can control the tone and sound of the instrument, breathing and tuning. Another of his I've heard is very similar.

Best wishes for the audition!

Those are both very good choices.
