Flute repertoire -
Vote for Earth! Makes me feel terrible when im learning Pathetique for that sort of thing, but i doubt i can play it to the level!!! Working on: Schubert - Piano Sonata D. The pieces were on that link I provided, no need to copy them all out. Needless replies I have to scroll through. It was a really good exam, quite different from the normal graded exams It was a really good experience and I would definitely recommend doing them if you can.
Yes, I know it's a step up from Grade 8, but what is the whole thing about?? You play your recital, 30 - 60 mins depedning on your level of diploma with repertoire selected of the copious lists above!!

You may play upto a third I believe off list! There are also support tests which involve Quick study - NOT sightreading..
They look for a performance of the piece and you get upto 5 mins to prepare it! You take a viva voce where the examiners will ask you rigerous questions about your instrument, your programme and the composers. You must also submit informed and well written programme notes. Naturally the recital needs to bel played to a good level. LRSM is roughly equivalent to grauate recital of a good university music degree. You should be able to confidently go before the public as part of a lunchtime recital series if you are serious about this diploma..
Its not for fun per say. Its a professional level of qualification and it is certainly not grade 9! Works like the Haydn no52 Eb sonata first mvt and Ravel Sonatine second movement are not easy works and candidates who can get a distinction level in these works are no slouches.
