Korganov Kleiner Waltzer Grade 3 Level -
A complete performance of this lovely waltz, showing a sense of style and character.
An excellent performance will sparkle, float and dance irresistibly. The joy of waltzing – whether in a grand ballroom with royalty or round a sunny garden with a friend – will charm and entertain the listener. Shapely phrasing, colourful melodic lines, artful changes of mood and supple rubato moments will characterise a confident and technically secure presentation.
A good performance will be graceful and elegant. The melody will be brought out clearly in either hand, with well shaped phrasing. Tempo will be flowing and ritenuto bars nicely judged. The technical challenges of coordination will not cause concern and any momentary insecurities will be quickly forgotten in an essentially enjoyable performance.
A sound performance will keep a steady and danceable tempo but here will be a rather earth-bound quality to the playing. Tempo fluctuations may be cursory or ignored. Dynamics will be mostly observed but there may be some slip-ups or bumpy playing. The changes of section and the transfer of the melody from one hand to the other may give rise to awkward moments.
