bach - Menuet in G 116

Post by bartgovaert » 10 Oct 2010, 22:13

This very nice piece is part of the ABRSM grade 3 syllabus (to be phased out this year). However, it is also part of Keyboard Anthology Third Series Book 1 - Grades 1 and 2 (also published by ABRSM)

So ... either these grades are a bit fluid. Or "standards have slipped" ...

Any other suggestions? It is not that important, I was just wondering. Not really planning to do any grades.

Well, you can play the notes correctly. OR...you can play the correct notes with phrasing, feeling, dynamics and musicality. For a lower grade they'd want the former (at the very least), for a higher grade, the latter.
I play for my own amazement... :piano;
