PLURENNIAL COURSE

PLURENNIAL COURSE
For students up to 19 years of age

PLURENNIAL COURSE

The Plurennial Course aims to develop the young pianistic talent's potential. The study plan and the examination programmes for the Plurennial Course students are divided into two subcategories:

• students from 15 to 17 years of age
• students from 18 to 19 years of age


This group of young performers pursues an activity that parallels the one followed by students on the Triennial Course, establishing thus a basis for a continuous didactic process inside the Academy.

The student's continued attendance of the course is confirmed on the basis of the Verification Exam by Commission, which reserves the right, on the basis of the standard of the exam performance, to suspend the student, if necessary.
The Plurennial Course cycle concludes until the end of the Academic Year in which the student reaches the age of 20.


ADMISSION EXAM

Students aged 15 through 17, a programme consisting of the following:

• A work by Johann Sebastian Bach and three freely-chosen études.
• A free programme of 25 to 30 minutes' duration, in addition to the above requirement. The free programme must suit the age and performance ability of the student; such suitability will be taken into account during the Admission Exam.

For students aged 18  through 19, a programme consisting of the following:

• A classical Sonata (Beethoven, Clementi, Haydn, Mozart).
• A freely-chosen Romantic piece.
• A virtuoso étude of choice.
• A freely-chosen programme of 20 to 25 minutes' duration, in addition to the above requirement. The freely-chosen programme must suit the age and performance ability of the student; such suitability will be taken into consideration during the Admission Exam.


ANNUAL VERIFICATION EXAM

Ages 15 through 17, a programme consisting of the following:

• A recital of 20 to 25 minutes' duration.
• A concerto for piano and orchestra.

Ages 18 through 19, a programme consisting of the following:

• A recital of 35 to 40 minutes' duration.
• A concerto for piano and orchestra.


PLURENNIAL TO TRIENNIAL COURSE EXAM

The recital programme, of between 45 to 50 minutes' duration, must fulfil the following requirements:
• A classical Sonata (Beethoven, Clementi, Haydn, Mozart).
• A Chopin Étude.
• Freely-chosen programme of pieces which may also have been prepared anytime during the Plurennial Course.
In addition to the above programme, the student must also present a concerto for piano and orchestra not presented previously.

The programme choice must be submitted for approval by the Director's Office.
At the end of the Plurennial Course, after the annual Verification Exam, a Certificate of Attendance will be issued, but not a Diploma.

Plurennial Course students are required each year, and subject to their tutors' instructions, to play the orchestral accompaniment to one or more piano concertos in their fellow students' exams. This accompaniment will also be incorporated into the overall assessment of the Verification Exam.

Repeating previously-performed pieces is not admissible except in the case of Diploma Exams, or the Exam to pass from the Plurennial to the Triennial Course. It is the responsibility of the relevant tutors to ensure that both the duration and the content of the programmes conform to the established rules.
