It may be too late for me to accomplish this in the time alloted, but I'd like to dial it back and try to do something that is actually within my grasp for the 11/15 ABF recital -- i.e. I'd like to submit something more polished than I have in the past.
Aside from Mary Had a Little Lamb, does anyone have any suggestions? Here are the aspects I'd like to hit:
1) Major key (i.e. nothing dreary)
2) Slow on the tempo side
3) Public domain
5) Musically interesting
For #5, to me this means some tempo changes, accidentals, that sort of thing. I'm fairly comfortable in different keys and with accidentals, it's speed and rhythm that are my biggest stumbling blocks. For purposes of the recital anyway, I'm not
looking for a challenge piece to help me improve those areas.
So far the only thing I've come up with is Mozart Minuet in G, but even that is pretty fast for me. I'm likely to max out at this tempo
I'd like to come up with 5-6 that I could read through and listen to before making a decision.
