I'm thinking about possible options for the FRSM.

 

Currently I'm thinking of

 

Liszt: Sonata in B minor   (around 30 mins)

Schubert: Fantasy in C ('The Wanderer')   (around 20 mins)

 

These are both some of my favourite pieces, and since the Liszt sonata was so heavily influenced by the Schubert I thought that they would make a very natural program. However I wonder if that could be an issue, due to their similarities? 

 

Just wondering what anyone thinks about this, and whether or not I need a more varied program.

 

Thanks!

I don think it matters at 'F' level. Two great pieces, I keep dipping into the Wanderer. Just a bit too far beyond me to play well.

As I understand the F level diplomas are intended to demonstrate depth rather than breadth. I do not have one, so seek more authoritative opinions!

For FRSM, a specialist programme is actually preferred. Therefore it is a plus, not a minus, that the two pieces are somewhat stylistically similar.
