I was picked up for 'wrong notes' in a piece by Boulez during my diploma recital. I am pretty sure I was note-perfect in that one.

I did, though, make up much of the 2nd mvt of Webern's Variations and that was passed without comment.

 

You can get away with a lot in atonal music, just so long as the way you play all the wrong notes is appropriate. It's rather liberating in that respect.

 

Congratulations on the ARSM.

Beware of examiners with perfect pitch, though! :wub:

Congratulations!

Just checking in some 9-10 months later to state that I achieved ARSM with the repertoire above (Mozart K309, Sculthorpe, Chopin op.69 no.1) and am now looking forward to learning some new material which will eventually turn into a dipABRSM repertoire. No rush on this one.

Thank you to everyone who offered advice and support during my journey :)

Fortunately, the scores are also quite hard to read – especially at speed.

Thank you again to all who commented.

 

Taking a break from Mozart at the moment and learning a beautiful Haydn Sonata (E-flat, No.59, Hob.XVI/49).

Nice to play something a little different. Finding more time for violin practice also. dipABRSM is a goal but not for a year at least.
