2016 CIPC Repertoire


REPERTOIRE

APPLICATION ROUND

Applicants must submit a performance recording of solo piano repertoire of the candidate’s choice. The recording should be a total listening time of no less than 20 minutes and no more than 30 minutes.  The recording can be submitted as a single DVD, sent by mail with a completed application form, or uploaded through the CIPC online application link.  (Click here for Application Information and Instructions.)  If an applicant is selected to participate in the competition, repertoire performed in performance video of the application round can be repeated in the first round, second round, or semi-final round.

FIRST ROUND AND SECOND ROUND

Use the five requirements listed below to choose repertoire for the first two rounds.  Over the course of the First Round and the Second Round, each of the five requirements listed below must be represented once.  Once the category requirements are met, remaining time can be filled with repertoire of the candidate’s choice.  A category may be repeated, but not a piece.

Candidates may present their choice of works in any order, provided the First Round performance does not exceed 30 minutes and the Second Round performance does not exceed 35 minutes.  All contestants will perform two rounds before the first jury vote.

1)     One original work or group of works by a Baroque composer (no transcriptions).

2)     One Chopin etude.

3)     One sonata by a Classical composer (excluding Schubert).

4)     One work or group of works by Chopin, Brahms, or Schumann (choose one composer).

5)     One work or group of works written by one composer after 1950.

SEMI-FINAL ROUND

The Semi-Final Round will consist of a recital not to exceed 60 minutes in length, comprised of works chosen by the pianist.  The program should demonstrate the candidate’s ability to present a stylistically diverse program.
