[Thanks, it's all done. Could have gone a lot better but I'm reasonably confident I did enough to pass...just feel like I let myself down a little bit - I am capable of playing much better than I did.
Handel -wasn't too bad, some minor slips, intonation a bit ropey in the first movement, second movement better I think.
Poulenc - so much worse than I usually play it, notes were generally there but it was just a bit flat (not intonation wise just performance wise) and dynamics weren't great. Top D towards the end didn't come out properly, and just sqwarked really loudly rather than being beautiful and quiet. Very disappointed in how I played this.
Britten - this was probably the best of the lot. Really pleased with it.
Scales - so hit and miss entirely due to nerves. I had another top D which didn't come out, had a compete blank on dominant 7th in D, messed up the turnaround at the top of my scale in thirds, think my melodic minor was a bit of a hybrid of harmonic/ melodic on the way up. Some were good though - chromatic on Ab, diminished on Eb, dominant in B (my F# sounded beautifully!). Hard to tell. May have got 19 if he is feeling generous.
Sight reading - in D (think by this point he had cottoned on to the D problem!)
lost its way rhythmically in the middle and I trilled to completely the wrong note, but I kept going and it sorted itself out towards the end.
Aural - Hard to judge. Cadence right I think, chords not so much, sightsinging OK, i know I didn't get the last bar right but he didn't give me a second go (I'd sung it right when practising to myself), confident on modulations and I waffled on for the last section. Probably enough to pass those I think.
I should have done better on the Poulenc, the scales and the sight reading. Possibly may have managed a merit but I think I should have been able to get distinction, annoyed that I didn't do myself justice.
oh well, onwards and upwards. May take myself out to lunch somewhere nice. Working from home this afternoon and then have to go to the dentist...
what a day.
Hope you get a nice surprise - it's always hard to tell, so hopefully you've done much better than expected.
Don't waste energy being hard on yourself. Indulge in some treats instead
