Among strings, violists were hit hardest, with all Bach Cello Suites prohibited as well as any passage of music containing a rhythm in 16th-notes or faster.
Unbelievable ! Now communism is in the school too?..They want to controle what students want to play?all the banned works are the must play list if you are a music major student…if society or system starts controle the freedom of music play.. It’s… The end of cultural era..
NOTE: The following article is intended as humor and its contents do not reflect the real policies of the Juilliard Administration. The Juilliard Admissions Office has asked The Yard to refer prospective students to the official repertoire guidlines listed on the Juilliard Admissions website: http://www.juilliard.edu/apply/program-information/index.php
At the time of this article’s original publication, guitarists had been spared from the ban. Many attributed this omission to the fact that the guitar repertoire is mostly weak as fuck anyway, so it’s no wonder they play the same shit over and over, but apparently the administration had simply forgotten guitar was a real instrument (again). Recognizing their error the administration amended the ban to include Assad’s Aquarelle, Barrios’s La Catedral, the Prelude from Bach’s Lute Suite No. 4 in E, Giuliani’s Grand Overture, Ginastera’s Sonata, Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez, all Isaac Albéniz transcriptions, and especially Koyunbaba.
