The ABRSM video example for Allegretto Grazioso  ,  bar 15.  Shows F sharp differently to  the  F sharp in the actually  Exam book for G3.

Hi MaggieH. 

 

I wouldn't worry.  In the video score, the F# is a dotted minim (3 beats).  The piece is in 3/4 so it should be clear – arithmetically and musically – that the leading note (A#)  is played on the third beat while the F# is to be held, tied to note in the next bar.  The ABRSM edition just makes this explicit rather than implicit.  It looks like the videographer is using a set of the 12 pieces Op 205 as this piece is numbered 11 which is correct for the Allegretto grazioso.  I suppose the publishers could have repeated what's been done in the lower stave of bar 15: a double stemmed note would achieve the same thing.

 

I played this for my grade 3 last year and the examiner seemed to like my realisation according to his write up and score. :)

Thank you very much Ligneo Fistula, for your very helpful clarification.

I found that particular bar a bit tricky.
