Repertoire

The repertoire for the 2024 course has now been announced, see below for full details.

Full scores and piano scores of the repertoire for this year’s course will be available in the coming months to download via this website.

IAYO can provide participants with a full set of study scores for the cost of printing and postage.

There may be further additions in the coming months to the repertoire.

Please note: When studying the scores, also think about which piece(s) you would like best to conduct and begin to practice these. Only study as much of the music as you feel you can manage well. It’s better to have a small amount well prepared than a larger amount less well prepared.

Participants are not required to learn all the scores.

The full repertoire for the 2024 course is as follows:

  • Rossini – ‘Barber of Seville’ Overture
  • Beethoven – Symphony No. 5 (First Movement)
  • Sibelius – Finlandia
  • Grieg – Peer Gynt Suite no. 1
  • Elgar – Chanson de Matin
  • Brahms – Hungarian Dance no. 6
  • Shostakovitch – Waltz from Jazz Suite (arr. Sophie Butler)
  • Maidrín Rua (Little Fox): Irish Traditional, arr. Anna Jane Ryan (2006) & Alan Cutts

We ask that you begin to study this repertoire before the course begins. If you have only a little experience, or none at all, please focus on:

  • Shostakovich -Waltz from Jazz Suite (arr. Sophie Butler)
  • Maidrín Rua (Little Fox): Irish Traditional, arr. Anna Jane Ryan (2006) & Alan Cutts

For those with more experience, we ask that you study more of those listed above.
