    Hi everyone! I am going to participate a piano competition. Here's my question, is Liszt's Transcendental etude no. 1 (which ends in less than a minute) too short for a competition or there's no problem with the length of it at all?
    Many thanks for those who answered :)

    I'd say it is way too short. Five 5 minutes is the usual maximum for a first round of a competition, and you may want to make the most of that. Also, this etude is not really competition material IMO. It's too simple and is really not more than a brief introduction to all that is to come. Now if you could combine it with the 2nd etude, that would be another matter...

    Too short. And, as already stated, it's too easy. What do the competition rules stipulate for the first round?
