Page 1, 6th line:
at the F-G# tremolo, add poco accel. until the Bb-Ab 16th notes, and
change these to 32nd notes (dotting the eighth rest that follows). Add a
tempo above the last beat of this line.
Performance Notes: Rests in parentheses represent approximate lengths, but not longer. Each type of rest need not have the same duration (i.e., each eighth rest may be a slightly different duration).
Page 3, 7th line:
last 3 notes: add Jazzy - lazy rhythm (also see Performance Notes below).
|Page 5, beginning of 3rd line:
one breath over the dotted slur.
Page 5, 5th & 6th lines:
1) On the 5th line, remove don't rush and replace it with accel. to the G-natural right after the 8th-note triplets on the 6th line, and add subito quarter note = 72 over that G. Right after that, add rit. over the quarter-note triplets.
2) After the bar line, change quarter note = 126+ to quarter note = 138+. This may be played faster if a fairly steady tempo is maintained. The f sempre may be interpreted as loud, but with flexibility.
Page 5, 6th line: Add cresc. at the beginning of this line, reaching f at the G-natural after the 8th-note triplets. Directly after that, add decresc... p under the quarter-note triplet.
Page 6, top line: For the last 3 beats of the top line, add an optional 8va continuing through the first 5 notes of the 2nd line.
Page 8, 6th line: 3 beats
from the end of the line, add mf subito.
Page 8, 7th line: 2 beats from the end of the line, add ff subito.
Page 8, 8th line: 4 beats from the end of the line add mf subito.
Page 8, 9th line: add cresc. at the beginning of the line, through the 6th beat's f cresc. poco a poco
Page 8, bottom line: change the last beat of the piece to 2 beats, by placing an eighth rest after the 2 B's, and placing the 16th-note F on the next downbeat, followed by a dotted eighth rest.
Performance Notes: It is important to make noticeable distinctions between staccato dots, staccatissimo wedges, accent (>) and marcato (^). The statement sempre alla misura and the marking ff sempre at the beginning should be taken seriously, but minute musical deviations may be considered.
