The Award finalists must be prepared to perform up to four 45-minute solo recitals across a range of contrasting repertoire during the Award week in Shepparton.

  • Baroque music – up to and including Johann Sebastian Bach.
  • Classic music – after Bach, including the music of Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert.     
  • Romantic music – from the 19th century up to 1900, but not including the music of Beethoven or Schubert.
