Hello everyone

I would like to ask you what romantic work did you use for your dma application. I want to have a general idea about what is played.

I played the Liszt Mephisto waltz.

Typically, you'll see things like:

Liszt Operatic Transcriptions, Dante Sonata, Funerailles, etc...
Chopin 4th Ballade, Barcarolle, Fantasy, 2nd or 3rd sonata, Polonaise-Fantasy, one of the larger polonaises (Ab or f#m), etc...
Schumann Fantasy or selections from Op. 16, 9, etc...
Mendelssohn Variations
Brahms Variations
Rachmaninoff Preludes, Etudes, Variations, 2nd sonata, Moments Musicaux, etc...

And it depends on the school. At a major conservatory, the sky's the limit. At a smaller state school, something from Brahms Op. 118 or Mendelssohn Rondo Capriccioso might be acceptable.
"If we continually try to force a child to do what he is afraid to do, he will become more timid, and will use his brains and energy, not to explore the unknown, but to find ways to avoid the pressures we put on him." (John Holt)

Do you happen to have a recording of it that you feel like putting up?
I'd love to hear how you played it. (Because I think I'd like your approach.)

I did Chopin op. 22 (Andante Spianato and Grand Polonaise). Fun, fresh, and beautiful.
