Macardle - Late at Night
Fiona Macardle - Late at Night is set for the ABRSM Grade 1 piano exam (2011-12)
Fiona Macardle teaches piano in the North East of England and has written numerous pieces for beginning pianists. This piece is taken from the Piano Time Jazz series published by Oxford OUP.
An excellent performance will give a convincing feel for the sleepy character in a gentle pace and a quiet yet evenly focused tone. Hands need to be balanced to let the melody sing in the RH. Phrasing should be musically shaped, with the ritardando observed at the end.
