Quote from: aquariuswb on April 23, 2007, 05:48:44 AMThat sounds like an excellent program. Have you chosen the Chopin Mazurka yet?
Quote from: JCampbell on May 01, 2007, 09:59:27 PMMan so many pianists and yet no one has advice for me in gr5? What are you holding back?
Quote from: lukeottevanger on May 02, 2007, 03:23:36 AMI will say that the Grade 5 pieces this year are a particularly nice (that is to say - easy!) selection - at least, there are some among them that are really pretty straightforward if you want a relatively easy ride. Concentration on playing stylistically is important at all grades; but I'd say Grade 5 is the one where it starts to count particularly, and there's lots of opportunity to do so as usual with these pieces.
Quote from: lukeottevanger on May 02, 2007, 04:04:24 AMSame as at all ABRSM Grades, except Grade 8 which is slightly different. That is to say, one Baroque/Classical piece, one Romantic piece, and one Modern/Jazz piece, all marked out of 30 (there are also scales, sight reading and aural tests, marked out of 21, 21 and 18 respectively). There is a choice of 6 pieces for each of these three sections, so you can usually mix and match quite nicely. Edit - sorry, that was obviously replying to Manuel. Karl, who is playing the shepherd, and who the rock?
Quote from: JCampbell on May 02, 2007, 05:40:11 PMIs ABSM similar to RCM? We have 10 grades, then ARCTs. The music selection is similar, with some baroque/classical, some romantic, and some modern/jazz. I wonder if the difficulty is comparable.

Quote from: Black Knight on May 06, 2007, 01:58:01 AMI'm playing that too! Do you have any favourite recordings? I only have Pogorelich and I'm not to fond of his interpretation...
Quote from: The Mad Hatter on May 09, 2007, 02:12:32 AMI have Emanuel Ax and Martha Argerich. I think the Argerich is a bit more exciting, from her debut recital, but neither are really...don't know how to phrase this properly...perfect for me.
