Auditions Auditions

Just spent a couple of days hearing small people playing things which is always interesting and occasionally very enjoyable. It is surprising how quickly you can tell whether someone is good or not. Finished the second day with a 10 year old playing a Prelude and Fugue from the Well-Tempered Clavier, which he carefully informed us was by JS Bach (Oh him). He played it beautifully too.

We always listen to all the pieces though as we have to be entirely fair No brilliant comic moments and I only had to engage the mute button in my head twice, which allows Music Teachers not to go mad whilst listening to notes of indeterminate pitch, rhythm.....
