I just did my DipABRSM examination re-take in the recital section. I failed by two last time despite a complete stoppage in my Brahms Ballade (Op. 118 No. 3).
This time, I don't think I did much better. I had multiple small slips in the Bach Prelude (BWV 874) where I did not stop, but a fairly solid Fugue. There were some minor slips in my first and third movements of Mozart K. 570 (partly due to page turns), but had a cleanly played Adagio 2nd movement.
I managed to keep my Chopin (Op. 62 No. 2) fairly together, but had a few delayed/early entries in my left hand. Again, I did not stop, and managed to shape everything.
My Brahms Ballade was much better this time. I kept the book open on the first two pages to prevent the stop (had a brief slip but did not go back). I memorized the rest and did not refer to the book. Dynamics were there, but there were some left hand inaccuracies (this piece is notorious for missed landings!)
What are my chances of getting the PASS? I really don't want to have to redo this again!!!! The travel (I live in Toronto - had to go to LA, and then Vancouver this time) is costly and time-consuming!
