    I would have played Suite Antique, the first piece, if IIRC, howver ABRSM, have changed their whole syllabus.

    The pieces weren't the bad part of my exam though. :rolleyes:

    I played Vivace (Sonata in B flat - Quantz), and then the 2nd and 3rd Movements from Sonatina (can't remember the key) by Jardaniyi and then Con Brio (this ragtime, full of fancy ornaments and stuff). :yes:
    Well the first movement of the Suite Antique (I played this one), I didn't actually like that much. The top of the second page is a pain as well.

    Lol, same for me (well although, admittedly, the Rutter went appaulingly), but my oral was hilariously bad :laugh: Got out of doing sight reading though (:yeah:) as I had an alternative of playing the aforementioned orchestral extracts.

    I'm not too familiar with those pieces, although I hear that Jardaniyi is quite fun to play. Who is Con Brio by?

    I'm not really working towards grade 8 at the moment, just playing about really - currently learning Godard's Suite de Trois Morceaux which is actually awesome. You must get hold of the music sometime :yep: First and second movements are fun and not too difficult (if you know of James Galway, you may be familiar with his demonstration of 16 flutes, which is on youtube, and he plays the first movement in this), and the third movement is actually really fun but extraordinarily difficult - it's like second diploma level. I can (poorly) play about two thirds of this movement though :smile:

    When you go on to do grade 8, I highly recommend Sunstreams by Ian Clarke. So much fun, and such a pretty piece

    Con Brio is by Russell Stokes. What a normal name for a composer, eh? :p: :rolleyes:

    Jardaniyi is quite fun actually. Very straightforward, nice accidentals, nice articulation and no god forsaken ORNAMENTS. :woo: His rhythms are very good too.

    I wanna get to grade 8, because technically I should have done it by now, I'm just very lazy when it comes to it, and my own laziness has held me back. :rolleyes:

    Are you doing ABRSM for Grade 8? I will look up the suite, maybe my teacher might have it... :beard:

    Fair enough. Ornaments can be good, especially when it's like a classical/baroque piece and you essentially get to put them in wherever you feel is right :smile: I played Mozart's Concerto in D for grade 7, and just like choosing where a trill or maudent should go. And there was a nice cadenza at the end [you had to make up your own one] but my teacher kindly gave me James Galway's 'secret' one :yep:

    Same! Ah, especially with saxophone, I've been so lazy this last academic year. I mean, I've played flute for about 6-7 years now, and I know a couple of those years went so lazily :tongue:

    Yep. I'll probably be playing Ian Clarke's Sunstreams, a study by Kohler, and then something else, which I have yet to decide. Definitely look up the suite. So awesome

    I like that I have someone I can talk about the flute with. :awesome: :love:

    Also, I agree ornaments aren't that bad in classical/baroque piece, the Quantz I played has some really nice mordents in it. However the Russell Stokes piece is just a bit... :nn:
