Enclose a list of repertoire with an explanation of why you chose to perform those pieces. Select one piece from the list that you particularly want the admission committee to hear and clearly explain the reasons for your choice. The programme should be compiled in such a way as to optimally demonstrate your technical and musical qualities. The works in the recording should be different in style and tempo.

Create a Word document with a list of all the links and the explanation of your choice of repertoire. You will upload the Word document at the appropriate question in Osiris Online Application later in the process.
