*strange facial expression*

“The Last Spring,” in Grieg’s own arrangement, is apparently ABRSM Level 8. I think.

*odd facial expression*

I shouldn’t be at ABRSM 8 after an 18 year hiatus from the piano. I certainly shouldn’t have had the first page memorized after one night.

I could have had this piece down in one week if I hadn’t had to work a fulltime job. Or less.

Honestly, I’m not an ABRSM 8. I can’t play anything else right now. But it’s still extremely weird and heartening at the same time.

Update: Apparently, it’s ABRSM 6/7. That makes a bit more sense since 7 is roughly where I was when I stopped, but it’s still a bit strange.
