a: Audition ~
b: playing one huge cadenza

What: "I often tell my students how lucky they are to have an opportunity to audition because all they have to worry about, once the hard work is complete, is communicating the music the best way possible. Without an orchestra to balance, no pitch to match, everything is up to the player, from tempo to pitch. An audition is like playing one huge cadenza that starts with Bach and ends with Stravinsky. Think of it as one performance instead of 14 separate excerpts."
