I'm having to accompany a grade 3 treble recorder pupil for her exam next week (I usually only do my own string players). The first piece is the Charpentier Prelude, from the Time Pieces book.
The metronome mark is minim = 72, which is pretty fast. Does anyone know if it's necessary to play it at this speed or if it's generally played a bit slower?
I know in the violin exam books they often say if pieces may be played a little slower in the exam and this strikes me as a possible candidate!
Any ideas welcome!
