Please provide a programme of music for the semi-final and final round of the competition. You may repeat as many pieces as you wish from one round to the next, or none at all. You can choose to include in a round only one/two movements from a sonata – or concerto-type work (instead of the whole work) to ensure your programmes are of the required duration. A maximum of one piece per round may be changed by 28 May 2021 at 16.00 hours GMT.
If you wish to apply for the Sir John Manduell Prize, state which piece (maximum 7 minutes) you will be playing from your Preliminary Round programme for this (must have been composed, not arranged, after 1970).
Save your application to continue with it at a later date. Your application will not be considered until it has been completed.
