ABRSM Grade 6 - Piano Exam Pieces
Senfter - Erster Schmerz (from Sechs kleine Stücke für Anfänger)
ABRSM Grade 6 – B3
We might imagine an oboe solo, with gentle support from strings. Later on, a middle voice joins in and the harmony gets a whole lot more interesting. The rhythmic challenge is to match the tempo of the A section with the B section, bringing flexibility and nuanced phrasing and tonal balance to the outer sections and dignified tautness to the middle. Compare Johanna Senfter’s Erster Schmerz (First Sorrow) with Robert Schumann’s and Sergei Bortkiewicz’s pieces of the same name. Resources & links Piano Exam Pieces...
