The DMA repertoire in double bass is patterned after a typical graduate recital.  In order to provide some latitude, the requirements are not dictated.  However, you must prepare “sufficient material to perform a full solo recital containing works which show a diversity of periods and styles.”

Artist Diploma

AD applicants must prepare a program of no less than 70 minutes duration, representing at least three style periods and including at least two large-scale works.
