BORCH Audition Chairman:
(use for all audition related business)
1) Movement I, Full measure 8, the F thirty-second note should be an F# (just like the F# eighth note at the end of that measure)
2) Movement II, Measure 13, in the second beat, second 16th note: this note should be a C, not a D
3) Movement I: disregard the tempo marking "(in 6)". It is more helpful to think of this movement in a quicker 12 or a slow 4, whichever is preferred by the student.
Movement I is marked "Allegro moderato", Movement II is marked "Romanza - Andante" and ends at the "Rondo - Allegro vivace" marking.
